Manchester City received a hero’s welcome after winning their second Premier League title in a row.
Vincent Kompany, Manchester City’s club captain, kissed the trophy as his teammates made their way on stage in front of a rowdy audience Sunday evening.
The sky exploded in fireworks after Manchester City secured the title with only 98 points—only one point more than Liverpool, who came in second place. Manchester City were then crowned Premier League champions after winning against Brighton in a 4–1 away victory.
Manchester City became the first team to have held the trophy for two years in over a decade. Afterward, Kompany said,” I’m so happy for myself but for the team and the fans too, it’s wonderful.”
