Vincent Kompany's EPIC speech in Manchester pub after City become champions

Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City- Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City- Premier League

Kompany watched Manchester United's shocking 1-0 defeat to West Brom, which handed City the title on Sunday, with his wife Carla at her United-supporting father's home before broadcasting his celebrations live on social media.

It evoked memories of Sir Alex Ferguson, the former United manager, being on the golf course when he heard his team had clinched their first Premier League title following Oldham Athletic's victory at Aston Villa in May 1993.

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.

City have won the league twice before in the Premier League era but failed on each occasion to retain the trophy, something captain Kompany hopes this squad can put right next year. "I'm buzzing, over the moon, so happy and proud to be able to share this with all of our fans, everybody who's been there to support us especially in this last week as many know it's been very hard but at the same time we've bounced back, we're champions now and thank you to all of you, It's an incredible season".

'We all believed in it. It's a hard achievement and I'm proud of the team and everyone involved. "It's gone before you know it". I suppose my team-mates will roll their eyes a little bit but I kind of want to see what the reaction is now. I want to stay humble.

"I think we share one thing maybe, the hunger and desire to never be satisfied", said Kompany. "We're still super happy but theres is so much to do before we unlock our full potential".

"I think we all believed in [his tactics]".

Pep Guardiola's side have scored 93 goals in 33 games so far this season, putting them 16 points clear of United at the top. There was a period of adaptation for him coming into the league and for us taking in his methods.

"If I had met him when I was 20 years old, I would have improved so much", the Belgium worldwide said. "This club is absolutely incredible in all terms".

"Hopefully we can celebrate with our fans against Swansea (next weekend) and be champions because they deserve it".
