Man City host title-winning party for 500 staff

Man City host title-winning party for 500 staff after lifting the Premier League trophy Pep Guardiola and his title-winning stars joined well over 500 Man City staff for a mass celebration on Sunday night.

Man City captain Vincent Kompany lifted the Premier League crown after the early kick-off against Huddersfield Town.

The champions were still looking to break the record for goals scored and points gained in a single Premier League season but could only manage a 0-0 draw.

They did seem fazed by the result, however, as the players enjoyed a huge bash later in the day with staff from all of Man City Football Group’s clubs descending on Manchester ahead of meetings next week.

Man City’s players mingled with staff during the party, staying long into the night while posing for pictures and taking part in games.

Defender Nicolas Otamendi took to Instagram to document the night’s events as the huge group made the most of the live music on offer.

Manuel Estiarte, a member of Guardiola’s technical staff, also took to social media to share a video of the players on stage with the trophy, dancing as blue confetti poured down.

Pep Guardiola’s side had been confirmed as champions on April 15, when rivals Manchester United fell to a shock defeat at the hands of West Brom, but they had to wait until after their penultimate home game of the season to celebrate properly.

The match action was slightly underwhelming — with City stuttering to a 0-0 draw with Huddersfield — but that did not stop fans and players celebrating what has been a fine season domestically.

Supporters streamed onto the pitch following the final whistle, after one fan had entered the field of play during the match and was ejected by security with the help of Man City goalkeeper Ederson.

Once the pitch had been cleared and a stage set up, the Man City players and staff returned from their dressing room wearing shirts with ‘Champions 18’ printed on the back.

Manager Guardiola was the first man to receive his Premier League medal, while club captain Vincent Kompany went up last.
