In addition to the 38 goals scored with the Tricolor shirt, added to his two passages, the striker scored 62 for the other seven teams he defended in his career.

– I am happy to have scored another goal and reached this special mark in my career, but, as I said yesterday, I left the field upset because of the draw. Still on the 100 goals, it’s a pretty cool number and I hope to continue improving these data here in São Paulo – said Calleri via press office.

The goal also made Calleri reach another expressive mark, this time for the club. With 38 goals, the Argentine isolated himself as the fifth greatest foreign goalscorer in the history of São Paulo.
Now, he is behind only the Paraguayan Barrios (40), the Argentines Albella (46) and Sastre (56), and the Uruguayan Pedro Rocha (119).

– I live a special moment in São Paulo. In fact, since my first visit, things have always been pretty cool here. I hope to continue scoring goals and helping the team to get the wins to fight for titles, which is what will really mark my name and that of my teammates in the club’s history – he commented.
With nine goals in 10 games in the Brasileirão, Calleri is the competition’s top scorer. For 50 years a foreigner has not managed to reach the end of the championship as the top scorer.
