TOTTI ENDS DIADORA DEAL

After being injured during AS Roma’s loss to Catania at the weekend and out for possibly a couple of months, it’s likely that former Italian international Francesco Totti has worn Diadora football boots for the final time.

Totti’s four year deal with the Italian manufacturer comes to an end in a few days and Totti has decided that he will change brands for the start of 2009.

Just which brand remains to be seen. It’s understood that the 32 year old has received a number of offers, one thought to be from Kappa, but as yet no final decision has been made public.

Totti is possibly a target of Kappa who make the Gladiatore pro above.

At the start of 2008, Totti appeared in Diadora’s LX K-Pro which was specially designed for Roma’s most capped player in what has been Diadora’s 60th year.

The black and gold football boots bore Totti’s number 10 on the tongue and also featured the names of his two children Cristian and Chanel.

Diadora once described Totti as their own ‘modern day gladiator’. His departure to another brand is likely to be keenly felt.

    Although Kappa are Roma’s shirt sponsors, I don’t think he will wear Kappa football boots. He used to wear Nike, so I doubt he will go back to them.

    My money is on Adidas – Adipures.

    i said he might sign for concave on goal.com and i think it is a serious possibility, concave need a big name to kick start their brand. and a lot of young players who look up to totti may want the boots to. kaka and quaresma are my idols and i really want the adipures. also the concave boots are meant to be perfect for a striker and very accurate and powerful and totti would fit in perfectly with his crosses and powerful goals.
