Francesco Totti hailed Roma after they confirmed their place in Italian football history.
Injured Roma star Francesco Totti hailed his team-mates after they confirmed their place in Italian football history.
The Giallorossi beat Roman rivals Lazio on Sunday to seal their 11th successive victory - a Serie A record.
Totti, who influenced much of the run, watched from the stands following surgery on his broken leg.
"Now we are in the history, Roma are historical," he beamed.
"It has been hard staying out and seeing my team-mates playing, but thanks to them this has been a really fantastic thing."
Roma coach Luciano Spalletti was equally delighted with his players.
"We must underline the behaviour of these guys, because they have won against a really good Lazio, who made a good match," he said.
"We have been lucky in obtaining the advantage and then we capitalised on it.
"Considering also the fact we were missing a really important player like Totti, we must give congratulations to these players. This win can give us a lot."
