AS Roma captain Francesco Totti credits his new form to caretaker coach Vincenzo Montella.

Montella has been fielding Totti as a striker and been rewarded with a scoring spree from the skipper.

Totti said: "Now at Trigoria I am no longer sad. I have always said that I find myself more at ease as a centre-forward.

"I score goals and make others score goals. In addition I have more freedom of movement. But I am not asking for anything ahead of next season.

"If the Coach makes me first or second striker there won't be any problems, but I find myself better in this position and I do what I want."
