Juventus legend Alessandro del Piero has congratulated AS Roma captain Francesco Totti on his scoring record.

Totti hit his 225th goal in victory over Genoa on the weekend, drawing level with Gunnar Nordahl in second-place on the Serie A goalscorers' chart.

"225 goals, another great target reached by a great champion - well done Francesco! Ciao Ale," tweeted Del Piero, now playing in Australia for Sydney FC.
