Roma has undeniably had a number of high quality football players to take the pitch. The likes of Francesco Totti, Daniele De Rossi, and Cafu have all graced the Stadio Olimpico with their talents, and have helped the Giallorossi to some memorable moments and achievements. Fans have bet on these players during live games online, bringing even more excitement to an already adrenaline-inducing sport. 

All three of these players have been integral to Roma’s success over the years, and have cemented their place in the club’s history. They are true legends and will be remembered fondly by the fans for years to come. There are many other iconic players who have played for the club—but let us talk about the 3 most iconic ones who have given us unforgettable football moments in the history of the sport. 

Francesco Totti

Totti, in particular, is a true Roma legend, having spent his entire career with the club, and becoming their all-time leading goalscorer. He is a symbol of the club and is loved by the fans. He’s been playing for AS Roma since 1992 and has been a key player for the team throughout his career. A true Roma fan, his passion for the club is evident whenever he steps on the pitch. Totti is a gifted goalscorer and is also known for his vision and passing ability. He is a true playmaker and has been a vital part of Roma’s success over the years. 

Totti has won numerous trophies with Roma, including the Serie A title, and is beloved by the club’s fans. He is a true icon and will always be remembered as one of the greatest players in AS Roma’s history.

Daniele De Rossi

De Rossi is another player who has spent his whole career with Roma and is a true leader on the pitch. He is a vocal presence and has a real passion for the club. He is a versatile player, capable of playing both as a defensive midfielder and as an attacking midfielder. He is also a former captain of Roma, having led the club to several trophies, including the Coppa Italia.

De Rossi began his career with Roma’s youth academy and made his debut in 2001. He quickly became a regular starter for the club and went on to make more than 400 appearances for Roma, winning the Coppa Italia in 2007 and 2008, and the Supercoppa Italiana in 2007. He also helped Roma to the runners-up spot in the 2006 Champions League.

In addition to his club career, De Rossi has also been a regular member of the Italian national team, making his debut in 2004. He has represented Italy at three World Cups, three European Championships, and the 2009 Confederations Cup. 


There are not many footballers who can lay claim to being a club legend at more than one club, but Cafu is one of them. The Brazilian right-back is a bonafide legend at both Roma and AC Milan, having enjoyed hugely successful spells at both clubs during his illustrious career.

When he joined Roma, Cafu established himself as one of the best right-backs worldwide. In fact he helped the club to an unforgettable Serie A title triumph in 2001—an achievement he became legendary for. He eventually left the club in 2008 after 11 hugely successful years in the Italian capital.

Cafu then had a two-year spell at Milan, before retiring from professional football in 2010. He remains an icon at both Roma and Milan and is rightly considered a legend at both clubs. But true fans know that Cafu, at heart, is Roma first.
