Sergio Aguero became Manchester City’s all-time record goal scorer after scoring against Serie A giants, Napoli in a Champions League encounter on Wednesday night.

Aguero slammed into the bottom corner past goalkeeper Pepe Reina to give City a 3-2 lead in the game that ended 4-2 in favour of the Premier League side.

The goal was the Argentine’s 178th goal for City, which takes him ahead of former record holder Eric Brook.

The 29-year-old surpassed the longstanding tally of 1930s club hero Brook when he struck in the 69th minute at the San Paolo Stadium.

The goals have come in the space of 264 appearances – an extraordinary strike rate for a player some thought was on the way out at City following the arrival of Gabriel Jesus.

Aguero joined City in a £38million move from Atletico Madrid in 2011, and had secured club hero status long before breaking the record.
