Francesco Totti: 'Now my goal is to exceed Piola'

Francesco Totti: 'Now my goal is to exceed Piola'

The Roma legend netted his 226th top-flight goal in a 2-0 win over Parma to go ahead of Gunnar Nordahl, who had spells at AC Milan and Roma.

Only Silvio Piola, who scored most of his 274 goals for Roma's bitter rivals Lazio, is above him, 48 in front.

"Now my goal is to exceed Piola," the 36-year-old said on www.gazzetta.it.

The victory moved Roma level on points with fifth-placed Inter Milan and boost hopes of European qualification.

"I'm happy with the win," Totti added. "I think it was the wonderful evening we all wanted. We were so many points behind Inter, now we are level on points."

Roma boss Aurelio Andreazzoli, appointed until the end of the season following the departure last month of Zdenek Zeman, praised Totti's influence.

"Totti? It's always much easier with him around, he makes difficult things look easy," he said on the club website.

Totti also wants Andreazzoli to remain in charge beyond the end of the season.

"Totti has said that if we continue like this he'd like me to continue as coach next season?" added the boss.

"The captain buying into it is very important, of course, but he's biased: he's my buddy."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
