Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero broke the club’s all-time scoring record, netting his 178th goal against Napoli in his team’s 4-2 Champions League win on Wednesday.
Speaking after the match, Aguero said he will give his shirt to his son Benjamin — Diego Maradon’s grandson — after breaking the record in the stadium where Maradona was an idol.
“I am very happy for this moment. I am happy because the team helped to support me — as did the fans and all the staff. I want to say thank you very much to everyone,” Aguero told BT Sport.
“I am enjoying this moment. I am very happy because this moment is a one-time thing.
“Napoli are a good team and away always in the Champions League is difficult.
“This shirt is for my son, he texted me to say: ‘As soon as you score, bring me the shirt.'”
City manager Pep Guardiola called Aguero a “club legend” for the accomplishment.
“When one guy achieved that, big congratulations, what he’s done for all his teammates, he’s a legend in the history of this club,” Guardiola told a news conference.
“Enjoy it, everyone has to be so proud.”
