Vincent Kompany returns for Manchester City

While City boss Pep Guardiola said he would be playing golf while the United match took place and a handful of players were reportedly out of the country, captain Kompany was at home watching the drama unfold with his family.

"Today was a day for the Blues - there have been many days for the Reds before, and ultimately it's banter. [Carla's dad] is a better loser than victor!" He was gracious about it and, to be honest, happy for the family.

Vincent Kompany barely let Manchester City's Premier League title celebrations begin before setting his side the challenge of making it two in a row next season. "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".

"You can't take it for granted".

Television cameras captured the moment the Belgian discovered he was a three-time champion but, after an initial burst of excitement, he was focusing on the potential for even more success.

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

"It differs because we were consistent the whole season, that level expected of us".

"We were exhausted, not just physically but mentally as well and a lot of big characters stood up today and that gives me a lot of pride again to be able to share these moments with this team".

Kompany added: "The favourite one has to be the first one, it's like carrying a massive rock on your back and you get rid of it". I have been lucky to win three but so many I have missed as well. I suppose the team-mates will perhaps roll their eyes a little bit but I have never retained a title so I want to see how we react now next season.

"People are asking whether we are the best Premier League side in history, but the answer is no, because we have a lot of work to still do", he told City's official website.

City's players were not together to watch United's game, with the title-clinching result a major shock to most onlookers. "I don't like to wait and see a team lose so it was different experience today", Kompany said.
