HE’S BEEN MOSTLY restricted to substitute appearances by manager Luciano Spalletti this season, but at 39-years-old, Francesco Totti is still making important contributions.

In his 600th Serie A appearance, Totti came off the bench to set up Miralem Pjanic for Roma’s third goal in a 3-0 victory against Chievo at the Stadio Olimpico this afternoon.


The Italian legend has played just 12 times this season — with only two starts — but he has still managed to chip in with five goals and three assists in 360 minutes of action.

After former AC Milan defender Paolo Maldini (647) and ex-Inter Milan defender Javier Zanetti (615), Totti becomes just the third player to pass the 600-mark in Italy’s top flight.
