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

Vincent Kompany

The skipper, in his tenth campaign with the Blues and now officially our most successful captain of all time, was ecstatic after the news broke that City had won the title following United's shock home defeat to West Brom.

VINCENT KOMPANY BASKED in the glory of clinching the Premier League in unexpected fashion on Sunday - then immediately challenged Manchester City to defend their title next season. "I've been lucky to win three but I've missed some as well", the experienced defender told Sky Sports.

Word quickly got around through social media and City fans queued outside a venue still advertising United's televised clash with the Baggies in a bid to join fellow supporters inside, where the players were seen belting out Oasis' Wonderwall and being serenaded by supporters expressing their delight and gratitude.

"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". The first one was special but this one is perhaps the one I'm most proud of.

"You can't take it for granted, before you know it it's gone".

Vincent Kompany has been recalled to the Manchester City starting lineup for Saturday's Premier League encounter against Tottenham Hotspur.

"I may be the first one that's already thinking about next season but I want to stay humble".

"[Against Tottenham] we had to be a little bit stronger mentally especially because it was off the back of an amount of bad events so I'm really happy with the result and the response".

'We all believed in it.

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

"I noticed within the first month that if I'd met him at 18 or 20 [years old] then I would've been the ideal player for him", Kompany said.

'He has been able to transfer to the team that hunger and desire to never be satisfied. We are all delighted but there is a lot more to do to unlock our full potential.

'We needed a period of adaptation...his methods were the right ones, we believed in him.
