Manchester City, led by Pep Guardiola have achieved a successful retain of the Premier League title. Raheem Sterling, Aymeric Laporte and Sergio Aguero have all pointed to the influence of Pep Guardiola as the driving force behind City’s incredible success this season.

While Pep is always first to praise his players, the players took this chance to heap praise on their manager as the Blues won another Premier League title against Brighton on Sunday.

Raheem Sterling:

“With the manager here, the mentality is the best, it’s all about winning no matter what game it is, no matter what team it is, winning, winning, winning, and how we can win, it’s a credit to him the way he sets us up,” Sterling said.

“I’m just happy to be here working, learning and winning another Premier League.

“As a manager, he’s got multiple players in each positions, and players challenge each other and I think that’s the most important thing, no-one’s comfortable here everyone’s on their toes and everyone’[s prepared when they get their chance, like Riyad today, he hasn’t played for a while and when he came in, I knew he was going to score at some point, or get a chance and he did that and I’m happy for him.

“The most important thing was the team and how we performed, to go 1-0 down and come back we showed our character as usual.

“It’s been a lovely season, after a difficult World Cup I said to myself I’ve got to start fast this season, and I’m happy I’ve been able to have a decent season and hoping that I can go one better next year.”

Aymeric Laporte:

“It was a difficult game and I think it’s very important for the team to win against Brighton and win the Premier League trophy.”

“What can I say? I’m very happy to be here, to be part of this team and hopefully next year is the same as days like today.”

Sergio Aguero:

“We knew we could win; we weren’t thinking Liverpool, just about our game.

“Pep said just focus on our game, not on Liverpool that’s not our problem. It’s more important that we all do it as teammates, I hope next year we do the same.”

With one more game left this season it’s safe to say Pep has his team, roaring and ready.
