Sao Paulo - Rogerio Ceni has broken Ryan Giggs' record for most wins with a single club.

Ceni reached his 590th win with Sao Paulo on Monday night to surpass the mark previously set by the Manchester United midfielder.

The 41-year-old goalkeeper is the world's most prolific scorer in the position with 123 goals. He already has eight goals in this year's Brazilian league as Sao Paulo trails leader Cruzeiro by five points with seven rounds left in the competition.

Ceni, who is set to retire at the end of the year, was a member of Brazil's World Cup squad in 2002 and 2006.

He has played 1174 matches for Sao Paulo.

Giggs ended his Manchester United career with 168 goals in 963 appearances.
