Totti: I can reach 300 Serie A goals

The Roma captain has scored 227 times in the Italian top flight and is hoping to hit another landmark before he calls time on his career
Roma legend Francesco Totti says he is determined to score 300 goals in Serie A and become the competition's all-time leading goalscorer in the process.

The 36-year-old made his league debut for the Giallorossi 20 years ago and has since found the net a total of 227 times in the Italian top flight.

“If I am in a position to do so, I am convinced that I will reach [300]," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"[If I had played as a striker] I would have reached 300 a long time ago."

His equaliser in Monday's Derby della Capitale drew him level with Dino da Costa and Marco Delvecchio on nine goals in the fixture and Totti said he was honoured to reach another career milestone.

"It's the record that I care most about," he added.

Should Roma get past Inter in the Coppa Italia semi-final on Wednesday, Totti will have another chance to score against Lazio once more in the competition's final.
