"We were disappointed with the Champions League but I think we reacted really well and made an unbelievable season".

Despite the failure to progress past the quarter-final stages of the Champions League, the 2018/19 season will be reflected upon as one of success for the Citizens, as they completed a clean sweep of the Premier League, League Cup and FA Cup titles.

"In the end, the only defeat they suffered came in that away game at Man City, on a night when Liverpool had a goal ruled out in the game by 11.7mm". Guardiola's work at City will not truly be done until he lands the Champions League, like he did twice for Barcelona.

"I think we're going to miss him [Kompany] a lot", Guardiola said during City's trophy parade on Monday.

He stressed in the build-up to the FA Cup final triumph he had no interest in any approach from Juventus following the departure of Max Allegri.

The news could come as a blow to City's local rivals United.

Guardiola, who was seen coaching Sterling in the aftermath of their Wembley victory, told BT Sport that "Liverpool show us how tough the future will be".

"We did it for the organisation, for Sheikh Mansour, Khaldoon (Al Mubarak) and all the people working here", said Guardiola, at the end of a week where City's success on the field has been overshadowed by more questions over the club's conduct off it. "This is the standards, the level we are going to face". He knows he can't sit on the beach for too long.

Ukraine’s president is sworn in, dissolves parliament
Even setting a date for his inauguration took weeks of negotiations, with Zelensky exasperatedly calling lawmakers "petty crooks". Some critics claimed his run was backed by controversial Ukrainian oligarch Igor Kolomoysky, whose channel broadcasts his shows.

"That's the scary thing for everybody else, the relentlessness, all trickles down from the manager".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola will have an extremely hard task of replacing the central defender and has already been linked to a Premier League defender, Leicester City's Harry Maguire, as per a report. "Just keep improving myself, week in and week out".

"This is the way I want to leave, I love you - I'm out", Kompany concluded before dropping the microphone.

"I know unless we do that it will not be enough".

Despite the uncertainty created by a potential Champions League ban over charges of breaching Uefa's Financial Fair Play regulations he last week committed to seeing his contract out.

"This club made a big step forward for the investment from Sheikh Mansour definitely".

After our inspirational captain had the last word of the evening, his team-mates again led the crowd in a rousing chorus of 'Here's to you Vincent Kompany, ' to bring the curtain down on a fantastic celebration of the Club's achievements.
