Michael Essien has paid homage to iconic World Cup winner, branding Roma stalwart Francesco Totti one of the greatest players he has ever played against.

After 786 games for his boyhood club, the legendary Italian departed the club on Sunday, following a dramatic 3-2 win over Genoa.

Totti, aged 40, was substituted on in the 54th minute and captained his side to victory one more time, before bidding farewell to the fans in an emotionally charged send-off.

He is one of the greatest one-club players of all-time, having made 786 appearances for Roma.

Essien told asroma.com:

"I know Totti long enough, I played against him at the 2006 World Cup in Germany, in a preseason game with Chelsea and more often when I defended AC Milan, to be honest, he still has all his abilities like when I first met him.

"I really admire his overall ability, he is able to perform in any difficult competition, so I want to celebrate his career."

"I hope He enjoys these days and all the honors He deserves, I will see him soon when I am in Italy again or elsewhere where we will meet."

"All the best Legend & Good luck Totti!"
