"You can't take it for granted".

Kompany also praised the impact of Guardiola after the Spaniard claimed his first league title in England after winning three in Spain with Barcelona and three in Germany with Bayern Munich. If I had met Pep when I was 20-years-old I would have been the ideal player for him and would have been able to improve so much, ' the Belgian defender added.

Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions this afternoon due to local rivals Manchester United losing to West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford. The first one was special but this one is perhaps the one I'm most proud of.

But Kompany has yet to help City retain the title and he admitted he would love to secure back to back Premier League triumphs.

"Any player under him has had success because of him and how they've improved as individuals".

'I'd like to stay humble, it's not a dynasty, it's just one title.

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.

She said the time had come for Russian Federation and Iran to bring peace to the beleaguered nation. The U.S., France and the United Kingdom targeted chemical weapons sites in Syria early Saturday.

The City captain was urged to make a speech by his supporters and the Belgian obliged his adoring fans.

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

"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".

"If I had met him when I was 20 years old, I would have improved so much", the Belgium worldwide said. We are all delighted but there is a lot more to do to unlock our full potential. There was a period of adaptation for him coming into the league and for us taking in his methods.

But Kompany said: "I had that feeling when I woke up this morning but I don't like to wait and see a team lose, so it's a different kind of experience today. When I was 20 I would have been a flawless player for him", he said. You realise something can happen and it was a wonderful goal by Rodriguez so thank you!

But he said Guardiola's hunger and desire to get better had rubbed off on all the players, including himself.
