Vincent Kompany goal from 30 yards made every single City player lined up for a hug with Kompany at the final whistle. One by one they embraced the Belgian who was in tears.
They were soon joined by the substitutes, various members of Pep Guardiola’s coaching staff and the track-suited players who were not in the squad.
Everyone went to Kompany and then it was Guardiola’s turn, with a bear hug for the man, after doubting his ability to score from that distance.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admitted after the game that he was urging Vincent Kompany not to shoot.
Kompany said Pep Guardiola had not been the only person doubting him “I could hear people saying ‘don’t shoot, don’t shoot! But I’ve not come this far in my career to have young players tell me when to shoot.”.
Aguero joked around with his teammates after the game, mimicking Pep’s reaction when he tried to stop Kompany from shooting from 30yards saying ‘No shoot Vinnie, no shoot!’, in a video posted on Man city’s official Twitter account.
Belgian defender Kompany’s goal was his first from outside the penalty area for City after 11 years with the club.
The City captain’s long-range strike gave his side a 1-0 win, meaning they will retain their Premier League title if they beat Brighton on Sunday.
The players still thrilled by the performance, took it to social media, tweeting congratulatory messages, Aymeric Laporte teased around with his post while celebrating his captains’ achievement also praising himself for providing the assist “We will see you again “citizens”!
One step more. Only one. C’mon @ManCity! #AL14 You’re welcome for the assist, captain.
Raheem Sterling posted “My face screaming “NOOOO VINNY WHY U DO THIS” so hard what a hit boi !!! Captain Incredible”
Ilkay Gündogan tweeted “Patience was key today! Incredible goal @VincentKompany 😎 One! More! Step! To! Go! Patience was key today! Incredible goal @VincentKompany 😎 One! More! Step! To! Go!”
