Francesco Totti said his 225th Serie A goal, making him the joint second all-time top scorer, was “a sign of my love for the Roma jersey.”
The captain was on target with a penalty against Genoa at the Stadio Olimpico and spoke to Sky Sport Italia at half-time.
“I wanted this goal at all costs and I managed to get it in front of my people,” said the man who caught Gunnar Nordahl on 225 top flight strikes.
“I am happy with this important achievement, which is a sign of my love for the Roma jersey.
“Now personal satisfaction must be set aside, because there are another difficult 45 minutes ahead of us. We must react and be a team to bring home the victory.”
