Sergio Aguero's decisive goal in Manchester City's 4-2 win over Napoli at Stadio San Paolo on Wednesday night saw the Argentine become the club's all-time top scorer, further cementing himself as a City legend and arguably the club's best ever player.
Aguero had drawn level with winger Eric Brook, star of the FA Cup and league title winning side of the 1930s, with his 177th City goal in a Premier League game against Burnley last month.
The Napoli strike, which came in the 69th minute in Italy - shortly after the home-side had equalised from the penalty spot to make it 2-2, was the record-breaking 178th.
"I am very happy for this moment. I am happy because the team helped support me with the City fans and the staff," Aguero told ManCity.com.
"Thank you very much for everyone. Now, I am enjoying this moment. I am very happy. This moment is once in a lifetime," he added.
"This [shirt] is for my son. He text me to say: if I score, to bring the shirt to him! I am happy for my family in Argentina and my friends. Hi everyone!"
Addressing the support of the fans, Aguero also told CityTV, "Since I came here, I’ve had the support to help me every game. I hope to continue in the same way and I hope the fans continue to enjoy my performances every game."
Aguero arrived in Manchester as City's record £38m signing in the summer of 2011 and got off to a flying start with two goals on his debut after coming off the bench in a win over Swansea.
He scored 30 goals in all competitions that first season, including the dramatic strike that sealed City's first league title in 42 years in the final seconds on the final day against QPR, and has only once scored fewer than 28 in six full seasons as a City player to date.
