16 April 2018

Manchester United's home defeat against West Bromwich Albion ensured Pep Guardiola's City were crowned as champions, with their impressive win against Tottenham on Saturday night enough to push them over the finishing line in a one-sided title race.

Vincent Kompany says he is proud of everyone at Manchester City after they clinched the Premier League title with five games remaining. "The first time you win it, you think you're going to win all of them, the first time you lose you think you're never going to win it again so we want to hold on to this feeling".

The City captain was urged to make a speech by his supporters and the Belgian obliged his adoring fans. There have been a lot more good days for the Red side but today it is for the Blue.

"Today is a sense of achievement because we've won the title in a way for the first time, I'd like to have won all other titles, so I'm extremely proud about this, and extremely aware of how fast these moments can go.

It is banter. It's been a great day", Kompany said. "It's gone before you know it".

But Kompany has yet to help City retain the title and he admitted he would love to secure back to back Premier League triumphs.

'You can't take it for granted, I have been lucky to win three but so many I have missed as well. If I had met Pep when I was 20-years-old I would have been the flawless player for him and would have been able to improve so much, ' the Belgian defender added.

'I suppose my teammates will roll their eyes, but i want to see their reaction.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss had already led City to League Cup final victory over Arsenal this term.

"At my age I can still learn and I enjoy every minute of it, but I think we share one thing of having the hunger and desire to never be satisfied".

'I'd like to stay humble, it's not a dynasty, it's just one title.

"Any player who has played under him has had success because of him and because of the way he has improved them as individuals and enabled them to unlock their full potential". Firstly for him, coming to this league for the first time, and then we had to take on all this information he was giving to us.
