A match for the history books as Sergio AGUERO breaks the Manchester City goalscoring record.
It’s been coming since the start of the season. The magical number to break was 177 and Sergio AGUERO reached it a few weeks ago and scored goal number 178 in a Manchester City shirt to become the club’s all time highest goalscorer. However, AGUERO wasn’t the only Argentinian to find the back of the net. With Napoli ahead 1-0, Nicolas OTAMENDI scored a well placed header to draw Pep GUARDIOLA’s team level.
With the score at 2-2, Kun pounced on a dead ball, ran forward and his shot found the back of the net for goal number 178 (in 264 matches) in a Manchester City shirt. That goal proved to be the winner as Manchester City picked up a 3-2 win against Napoli.
Pep GUARDIOLA as well as Sergio AGUERO himself (speaking with Manchester City’s website) commented on the goalscoring record. Here’s what they had to say:
“When one guy achieved that – big congratulations. What he’s done for all his team-mates – he’s a legend in the history of this club. Enjoy it. Everyone has to be so proud.”
Sergio AGUERO on goalscoring record:
“I am very happy for this moment. I am happy because the team helped support me with the City fans and the staff. Thank you very much for everyone. Now, I am enjoying this moment.
“I am very happy. This moment is once in a lifetime. 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!”
