Video: Francesco Totti superfan meets idol and unveils huge tattoo of Roma star

Francesco Totti is considered a legend by Roma supporters, but some have taken their love for the Italian forward to great lengths.

Take Thomas Jonsson for example, who visited the club’s Trigoria training ground on Friday to meet his hero and showed off his full-back tattoo to him.

“He seems to like my tattoo,” Jonsson said, after chatting with the Giallorossi icon as noted by asroma.com.

“To meet Totti was just amazing. He has a great sense of humour – he also asked when I was going to do a chest tattoo!”

With his wife also present, the pair relished the opportunity to see Totti’s reaction to the tattoo, as the 39-year-old went on to pose for pictures and talk with them to undoubtedly make it a memorable day in their lives.

Meanwhile, Roma boss Luciano Spalletti also joined in on the fun as he posed for selfies with Jonsson’s back, and ensured that the Giallorossi supporter promised to get a tattoo of him done if the club win the Scudetto next season.

As for Totti, with his contract expiring this summer, it remains to be seen whether or not the likes of Jonsson and the countless other die-hard supporters that he has will see him continue to don the Roma jersey beyond this season.

However, having made significant progress under Spalletti since his return to the club in January, perhaps they are on the right path to making Jonsson’s next plan for his next tattoo become a reality with or without their talismanic forward who has been at the club since 1989.
