Ștefan Radu continues to make history for Lazio every time he steps onto the pitch.

Earlier in the week against ACF Fiorentina, the 34-year-old set a club record in Serie A appearances for the Biancocelesti with 320 league appearances. Radu overtook former forward Aldo Puccinelli, who made 319 appearances. 

Now that Radu has the league appearance record for Lazio, he’s eyeing the all competitions record for the club, where he now sits in second place after starting in the match against Parma Calcio. 

After appearing in Le Aquile‘s 2-0 victory over Parma, Radu made his 394th appearance for the club, which ties him with former Lazio center-back Giuseppe Wilson for appearances in all competitions La Lazio Siamo Noi reports. 

Radu now sits seven matches from becoming Lazio’s all-time total appearances as Giuseppe Favalli holds that record with 401. Barring any injury, Radu will overtake that position from Favalli by the time the season ends. 

The Romania international’s contract expires in June, so it remains to be seen whether Lazio brings him back for another season. Regardless, overtaking two records is one way to leave on a high note for Radu.
