Now let's win it again: Kompany sets City new title target

Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany has challenged his teammates to build on the first Premier League title of the Pep Guardiola era and create a dynasty at the Etihad Stadium.

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

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. "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".

City were confirmed as champions on Sunday, with five games still to go, when their closest challengers Manchester United were surprisingly beaten 1-0 at home by bottom side West Brom.

"I was talking before the game and saying the first time you win it, you think you're going to win all of them".

City have won the league twice before in the Premier League era but failed on each occasion to retain the trophy, something captain Kompany hopes this squad can put right next year.

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

"I may be the first one thinking about next season".

Kompany made a speech to mark the moment, as he and and his team-mates posed for photos as they left the venue at 10.30pm, leaving to a chorus of "campiones, ole, ole, ole".

"Today was a day for the Blues - there have been many days for the Reds before, and ultimately it's banter".

Vincent Kompany says it's too early to say whether they are the best EPL team ever.

"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".

"But in our defence, we can only be judged on a period of time, so we need, two, three or four years in a row and if at the end of this we are consistent like we have been this season then perhaps, but we have taken one step that's all we can do at the moment".

"It's incredible the way we played and I am so glad to be here and be part of this club", he said on the club's website. "[Carla's dad] is a better loser than victor!" "I don't like to wait for a team to lose, so it was a different kind of experience today. We're still super happy but theres is so much to do before we unlock our full potential".
