Video: Kompany reflects on Manchester City’s ‘miracle’ title triumph
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany describes his side's Premier League title triumph as a "miracle"
Vincent Kompany described Manchester City’s dramatic title triumph as a “miracle” after the Citizens ended their 44-year wait for a top-flight crown in dramatic circumstances on Sunday.
QPR’s Djibril Cisse and Jamie Mackie scored in a frenetic 15-minute spell to cancel out Pablo Zabaleta’s first-half opener, leaving City in second place behind Manchester United.
But substitute Edin Dzeko headed in a leveller in the second minute of stoppage time, before Sergio Aguero burst past the QPR defence and clinically fired home to prise the title from United’s grasp.
“Miracles do happen in Manchester, but it’s this side of the road this time.” Kompany said. “This game was crazy, there is no other word to describe it. I remember QPR having two chances on goal, but it just had to happen.
“The way it ended just reminded me of the games against Tottenham, when we won in injury-time, and Sunderland, when we equalised late to get the point that made all the difference for us.
“When Sergio scored, it was one big blur. I remember jumping on top of him and he was crying on the floor. All of a sudden it was finished and we had won the league, but we expected to do it today.
“We are champions, but it’s not about coming here for money and all these stories we’ve heard. We’ve dreamed of this all our lives, when we were kids and we had no money, we had nothing. Now we are champions and that is all it’s about.
“You want to say it’s the best moment of your life, after the birth of my child and my wedding, but please never again this way, please.”
