Belgium defender proud to be a part of City’s revolution.
Captain Vincent Kompany has warned Manchester City’s rivals that a big club is being built at the Etihad Stadium.
City secured their second Premier League title in three seasons by beating West Ham United 2-0 on Sunday.
Kompany, who was a goalscorer in the victory over the Hammers, told BBC Sport: “It’s a great achievement. It will be recognised.
“We’re building a big club and I’m proud to be part of this.
“We did everything right this season. We’ve had a busy schedule and we’ve come through. As the fans say, we fight to the end.”
City’s transformation into national champions has been spectacular.
Despite being founder members of the Premier League in 1992, they were competing in the third tier of English football just 15 years ago,.
Back-to-back promotions saw them return to the top flight in 2000, but they failed to avoid relegation in their comeback season.
However, they bounced straight back up by winning the old Division One title in 2002 and they have remained a Premier League club ever since.
In 2010, City finished fifth – the first top-seven Premier League finish in their history.
Since then they have come third, first, second and now first again.
