Manchester City superstar David Silva has posted heartfelt photo of himself and his son Mateo after his club were confirmed as the new Premier League champions on Sunday, April 15. Combining speed, guile, power and more speed, it has blown away opponents and redefined what anyone thought was possible in the English game.
Here's what pundits, managers and players have said after City won the league... The 32-year-old Silva's game has been elevated again in this free-flowing City side, with his outstanding eye for a pass and unshakeable control in possession key to Guardiola's system. They were unbeaten in the Premier League until January 14, when Liverpool ended that unbelievable run at Anfield.
A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in flawless style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate. "I saw lots of people in the moon because we won against City".
The England global is City's second-highest scorer behind Sergio Aguero but his goals have also come at some key moments on their road to the title. "City were the best team, sooner or later they would get the points, so no dramas when the best team wins the league", Mourinho said.
City skipper Vincent Kompany has now won three Premier League titles since joining 10 years ago.
I was unfortunate enough to play against that quality United side that dominated in the '90s, but this side would have beaten them - that's how good they are.
"It shows how football is in Manchester".
It is City's third title in seven seasons and a first under the Spaniard in his second campaign in charge.
'Especially if you've been a Blue for more than forty years.
"The moment he can (improve) his average chances to score a goal, he will become one of the best players in the world", Guardiola said after the Saturday evening kick-off.
"We were able to play at the level that we are expected to perform at and I think the previous times when we have won it a lot of times you can actually say that we almost through it away".
'I'd like to stay humble, it's not a dynasty, it's just one title. There was a period of adaptation for him coming into the league and for us taking in his methods.
