Vincent Kompany delivers epic victory speech to Manchester City fans and players

Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions this afternoon due to local rivals Manchester United losing to West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford.

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.

Vincent Kompany barely let Manchester City's Premier League title celebrations begin before setting his side the challenge of making it two in a row next season. "The previous ones we almost threw it away, I've seen many teams win it as champions for the whole season but in our case it's the first time".

In his second season in charge, Guardiola, aided by the vast financial backing of City´s Abu Dhabi-based owners, has created a sublime team that helped him become the first Spanish coach to win the English top-flight title.

"We all believed", said Kompany. "I'm proud of everyone involved".

City captain Kompany watched the match at the house of his Mancunian wife Carla Higgs, who invited her United-supporting father to join the party.

"[This season] differs in the fact that we were consistent", the Belgian explained. I want to see if this team has got it to carry on and be more successful. They were the right ones and the ones we believed in, I'm sure there are differences to how we play today compared to Bayern (Munich) and Barcelona, we survive and live by the strength of the team.

Kompany made a speech to mark the moment, as he and and his team-mates posed for photos as they left the venue at 10.30pm, leaving to a chorus of "campiones, ole, ole, ole".

"At my age, you can still learn and we share one thing: that hunger and desire never to be satisfied". It's just one title.

"It's brilliant and we're super happy but there is still so much work to be done before the full potential is unlocked for the whole team".

"I had a feeling when I woke up this morning", he said. "It was a wonderful goal from Rodriguez - thank you".

'It shows how football is in Manchester. "We have Reds in the family, we have Blues in the family; today was a day for the Blues, there have been many days for the Reds before, and ultimately it's banter".
