Seriea top scorer It’s been above two decades since he made his Serie A debut for Roma on March 28, 1993, and in these years of Serie A football, Francesco Totti has joined Italian football’s history makers.

His record breaking achievement will soothe the pain of a turbulent season, but, more importantly, it bears testament to Totti’s leadership, determination and capacity to overthrow adversity in the toughest of circumstances, and perhaps in one of the Lupi’s hardest seasons.

Totti has taken it all in his stride; labelled as finished with the constant threat of injury, caught up in the middle of the Claudio Ranieri – Vincenzo Montella battle for the bench, blamed for his side’s Champions League exit… it’s been tough at Trigoria.

But tough times call for tough measures, and there’s no one better – has there ever been? – to take a leading role at Roma than ‘Er Pupone’. And he responded in the way he knows best against the Viola, a typical Totti penalty first, and classic strike second to rescue his side, the result.

A fine man, and a player who has always been in love with the ball – his best friend, just like Baggio before him. The former Juventus ace took 19 years to score his 205, but he did it with different clubs. Not Totti. A one club man, or one man club if you like – a claim he is entitled to.
