Roma’s Kolarov sets record

Roma left-back Aleksandar Kolarov is now the highest-scoring defender in Europe’s top five Leagues after taking his goal tally to eight.

Kolarov’s penalty not only helped Roma beat Bologna 2-1 on Monday but also saw him top the scoring charts for defenders in Serie A, the Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1 and the Bundesliga.

Seven of the Serb’s goals have come in the League, with the other coming during a 7-1 defeat to Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia. adds the Giallorossi’s Curva Sud stopped their protests against the 33-year-old as a result.
