This is our proudest victory, says Vincent Kompany

Pep Guardiola Manchester City Manchester United Premier League

Vincent Kompany delivered an emotionally charged speech to Manchester City fans and players after the club's title triumph. "I've been lucky to win three but I've missed some as well", the experienced defender told Sky Sports.

Kompany, whose return to regular fitness has been a key factor in City's success this season, said there could be no talk of domination after they won a first league title since 2014. But tonight, we win it again.

"You just want to hold on to the feeling". It's fantastic, it's such a hard achievement.

"I'm extremely proud about this and extremely aware of how fast these moments can go".

It was a far cry from his trophy-less first season with City and Kompany said Guardiola´s tenacious attitude led them to the summit.

"It is banter. It's been a great day", Kompany said.

"You can't take it for granted.before you know it, it's gone. 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". "It's not a dynasty, it's one title - we're super happy but there's so much work to be done". "In other times we almost threw it away". "When I was 20 I would have been a flawless player for him", he said.

Guardiola's squad kicked off their celebrations unexpectedly early as Bernardo Silva, John Stones, Fabian Delph and Kyle Walker joined the skipper at a packed Hale Wine Bar.

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.

Kompany and Co posed for photos as they left the venue at 10.30pm, leaving to a chorus of "campiones, ole, ole, ole".

Press Association was used in this report.

"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".

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

"The conditions were different to what he had at other clubs, but his methods were right and were what we believed in". "We are nothing without the team".

"I had a feeling when I woke up this morning", he said.

City will lift the trophy regardless of the result, but you'd be safe to assume they will want to do it in style, and stick a few goals past the Swans. We've got red and blues in the family.

"He's a better loser than a victor, I have got to be honest!"
