Sergio Aguero has become Manchester City’s all-time leading scorer thanks to his strike against Napoli on Wednesday evening.
The Argentina striker now has 178 goals for City, surpassing Eric Brook’s tally of 177.
Brook scored his final goal for the club in 1939, meaning Aguero has broken a record that had stood for 78 years.
And, while Brook scored his goals over an 11-year period with City, Aguero has managed to surpass him in little over six.
Aguero equalled the record with a penalty against Burnley in October and, although he converted from the spot in a penalty shoot-out against Wolves in the Carabao Cup last week, it did not count towards his total.
He kicked off his City career by scoring twice on his debut, against Swansea City in August 2011, and ended his first campaign in English football by scoring perhaps the most dramatic goal in the league’s history; the last-gasp winner against Queens Park Rangers which clinched the Blues’ first title since 1968.
