Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany and midfielder James Milner are determined to win more trophies for the club after they sealed a second Premier League crown in three years on Sunday.
Belgium defender Kompany spoke out as the squad celebrated their league title success on an open-top bus parade from outside Manchester’s Town Hall to Albert Square on Monday evening.
And the 28-year-old, who scored City’s second goal in Sunday’s title-clinching 2-0 win against West Ham at the Etihad Stadium, is determined that they will make a better job of defending their crown than in the 2012-13 campaign when they finished 11 points behind city rivals Manchester United under former boss Roberto Mancini’s leadership.
Kompany, who is enjoying life under current coach Manuel Pellegrini, said: “This is a team that is growing and we have done it in style.
“Everyone keeps saying, ‘They have won the league and they have done it in style’.
“That is what I like about it. That is what I want us to do again in future, keep winning in style.
“We never gave up, we always believe. Together we did it, we knew we could, and until the end we fought and we brought the Premier League back to the city, and in the colours it should always be.”
Meanwhile, England international Milner, who is now entering the final year of his contract at the club, is determined to help bring more silverware to the Etihad in the coming season having also picked up a Capital One Cup winners’ medal this term.
He said. “I have got one year left on my contract. We have won two trophies this year. I have been at the club four years now and enjoyed every minute.
“We have managed to win a few trophies along the way and that is why I came here, to win trophies. That’s amazing. I just want to contribute as much as I can and play as many games as I can, and help the club to win trophies.”
