Pep Guardiola hails "hardest" title win yetBlues crowned as champions of England for seventh time

Manchester City were crowned as champions of England for the seventh time on Tuesday evening, following Leicester's victory at Old Trafford.

It is Pep Guardiola's third title in four years, and his tenth major honour as City boss. The global Covid pandemic presented numerous challenges, and Guardiola described it as the toughest campaign of his City career.

“This has been a season and a Premier League title like no other,” said Guardiola. “This was the hardest one. We will always remember this season for the way that we won. I am so proud to be the manager here and of this group of players.

“They are so special. To come through this season – with all the restrictions and difficulties we’ve faced – and show the consistency we have is remarkable.

“It is relentless. Every single day, they are there, fighting for success, trying always to be better. They have been so, so resilient.

“That is equally true of each and every member of our backroom staff, who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that our players are fully equipped to take on the unexpected challenges and new routines throughout such a turbulent year.

“Not forgetting, of course, all of the staff across our organisation who work to make this club the success it is. Whether that’s been from the offices at CFA or working from home, the efforts of every employee in such trying circumstances have contributed to this achievement.”
