Kompany eyes more glory as City net title

By Robert Jones

Manchester City's Vincent Kompany has already set his sights on retaining their champion status next season.

City won the Premier League title as Manchester United's shock 1-0 home defeat by West Brom confirmed their rivals as champions.

Jay Rodriguez's header means second-placed United are now 16 points behind Pep Guardiola's side with only five games left to play.

Kompany, who will now collect his third Premier League medal, said: "It's the same feeling as the first time, you can't describe it.

"The first time you win it, you think you're going to win all of them, you want to hold on to this feeling.

"I had that feeling when I woke up this morning. West Brom are a good team. As they stick into the game, you realise something could happen, and it's a wonderful goal from Rodriguez, thank you!

"We all believed in it, otherwise it wouldn't happen. We needed a period of adaptation...his (Guardiola's) methods were the right ones, we believed in him.

"Any player playing under him has had success because of the way he has improved them as individuals."
