MANCHESTER: Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has put the club's title success as one of his happiest moments in life.
The Belgian centreback was still star-struck during the post-match Press conference that he was at a loss for words and couldn't recall what ran through his mind when Segio Aguero netted a late winner to gift City their first English Premier League and first top-flight title since 1968.
"This moment is there with the birth of my child and my wedding. But the whole thing is still blurry to me," said Kompany.
"It has not sunk in yet. I don't know what happened at the end, it was just a huge mess. Sergio (Aguero) scored the winner and he was on the ground crying. All I remember was jumping on him. Miracles do happen in Manchester but on this side of the road this time," said the 26-year-old.
Kompany was one of City's several defensive players who spent most of the last 15 minutes in the QPR half as City pressed for an equaliser and winner after conceding two goals early in the second half despite taking a 1-0 lead at halftime.
Typical of any footballer after tasting success, Kompany insisted he never lost faith that the Blues would still find joy at the end of the match.
Statistics also back Kompany's faith as City have scored 18 goals this season in the last 10 minutes of their matches. Such late goals are synonymous to title-winning sides in the past as both Manchester United and Chelsea have done the same over the years.
"I never stopped believing," he said. "When Edin (Dzeko) scored that goal, it reminded me of so many other moments during the season when we've done it. There was no reason not to believe."
"I'm so happy for the guys because they've given so much this season. We dreamed about this all our lives and now we're champions. Look at the fans, how happy they are. It's unbelievable," he added.
