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

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.

It's the first time that he hasn't won the title on the final game of the season after their successes in 2012 and 2014 and now wants to see if they are capable of defending their crown for the first time.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany was proud of the way his side responded against Tottenham to overcome a "tough week" and edge closer to the Premier League title. 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.

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. I have been lucky to win three but so many I have missed as well. It's a hard achievement and I'm proud of the team and everyone involved.

'We all believed in it.

"This is not a dynasty, it is one title we've won". We are all delighted but there is a lot more to do to unlock our full potential.




"But in our defence, we can only be judged on a period of time, so we need, two, three or four years in a row and if at the end of this we are consistent like we have been this season, then perhaps but we have taken one step, that all we can do at the moment".

"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.

'He has been able to transfer to the team that hunger and desire to never be satisfied. "I don't like to wait for a team to lose, so it was a different kind of experience today".

'Especially if you've been a Blue for more than forty years.

"As (West Brom) got stuck into the game you got the feeling "something could happen here", and a set-piece, a wonderful goal from Rodriguez - thank you! - it's a great feeling".
