West Brom victory seals title for City, and now Kompany wants more

West Brom victory seals title for City, and now Kompany wants more

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.

Vincent Kompany delivered an emotionally charged speech to Manchester City fans and players after the club's title triumph.

"It is banter. It's been a great day", Kompany said. "[Carla's dad] is a better loser than victor!" He was gracious about it and, to be honest, happy for the family. But tonight, we win it again. "I've been lucky to win three but I've missed some as well", the experienced defender told Sky Sports. "It's gone before you know it".

"If I had met him when I was 20 years old, I would have improved so much", the Belgium worldwide said.




"It differs (to previous titles) in the fact we were consistent the whole season. I have never retained a title so I want to see if this team's got it to carry on and be even more successful". "I'm proud of everyone involved".

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. 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.

Our win at Tottenham yesterday - coupled with Manchester United's unexpected defeat at home to West Brom earlier - means we now have an unassailable lead with five matches remaining.

Kompany dropped down to the bench for the Champions League encounter with Liverpool in midweek, but the Belgian returns in place of Nicolas Otamendi for the fixture in North London.
