debut on March 28, 1993, against Brescia. 1994-95 was the season Totti became a regular name of Roma's line-up and he scored his first goal. Totti's age was 22 when he inherited the number 10 shirt and captain armband of Roma. He was the youngest Serie A captain ever.

Upcoming season, he won the Serie A Footballer of the Year. Fabio Capello joined Roma and ran Scudetto campaign for Roma. Totti, at the end of the season, won the Scudetto with Roma.

Later, Antonio Cassano and Totti formed a very lovable duo in the front line of Roma, with fluid roles as two strikers.
On some points, he even served the team as a central midfielder. In his late career, despite losing the agility, Totti remained a great gift for the team as super sup. He was a free kick expert too and scored 21 goals from free kicks in Serie A. Only three players have scored more goals from the free kicks. Totti is the oldest player to score a brace in Serie A. He has the third most Serie A appearances behindGianluigi Buffon
and Paolo Maldini and above Javier Zanetti.
Another expertise he had was the perfect touch. He had his own trademark backheels and cheap shots. On September 30, 2014, just three days after his 38th birthday, Totti scored one of his most memorable, cheap goals in a Champions League group stage match againstManchester City
