City were confirmed as champions on Sunday, with five games still to go, when their closest challengers Manchester United were surprisingly beaten 1-0 at home by bottom side West Brom.

Guardiola failed to pick up a trophy in his first year at the Etihad Stadium but has now won the league and EFL Cup - secured with victory over Arsenal at Wembley in February - this season.

He called on team-mates to do what they were unable to after their previous two titles, and retain...

"If I had met him when I was 20 years old, I would have improved so much", the Belgium global said.


Kompany was joined by Bernardo Silva, John Stones, Fabian Delph and Kyle Walker joined the skipper at a packed Hale Wine Bar, where the players were seen belting out Oasis' Wonderwall and being serenaded by supporters expressing their delight and gratitude.

Television cameras captured the moment the Belgian discovered he was a three-time champion but, after an initial burst of excitement, he was focusing on the potential for even more success.

"It just shows how football is lived in Manchester - we've got Reds in the family we've got Blues in the family", he said.

"People are asking whether we are the best Premier League side in history, but the answer is no, because we have a lot of work to still do", he told City's official website.


"You can't stay in your front room when you win the Premier League", one of those associated with City said as he exited the venue to no doubt continue the celebrations elsewhere.

"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". 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.

But Kompany said: "I had that feeling when I woke up this morning but I don't like to wait and see a team lose, so it's a different kind of experience today".

"It's been a fucking long journey... especially if you've been a blue for more than forty years in your heart!" You realise something can happen and it was a wonderful goal by Rodriguez so thank you!
