Commentary - Aguero goal wins title for City

"I want to win more. I'm hungry. This feeling is indescribable," captain Vincent Kompany told BBC Radio 5 live.

Midfielder Yaya Toure told City TV: "We have fantastic players, they are growing. They have fantastic talent and next year we will get more cups."

Striker Carlos Tevez, who missed six months of the campaign due to a dispute with City, said: "This club have got the players that can win lots of trophies, this is a real big step towards that."

City appeared to have thrown away the league crown when they went 2-1 down to QPR, while rivals

But Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero struck in stoppage time to seal City's first title success in 44 years.

Belgian centre-back Kompany added: "We knew Manchester United were winning but always said we had to focus on our game. We knew we had to win.

"This season has been unbelievable, so emotional, and when you do it like [we did] there are no words to describe how it happened.

"For all the club legends and fans who have waited so long, I'm so, so happy."

QPR were playing for their Premier League survival and were safe before full-time at the Etihad as Bolton had drawn against Stoke.

City midfielder Gareth Barry said: "I was fearing the worst with five minutes to go.

"It was a massive mountain to climb. It all fell perfectly, with QPR knowing they were safe and all of a sudden we were on a high."

Match-winner Aguero, who finished his first season with City with 30 goals in all competitions, said: "The only thing I can say is I am really happy.

"The truth is we can hardly believe it ourselves.

"We thought the Premier League had gone. Thank God it all worked out for us.

"We got two goals in five minutes, it was absolutely unbelievable."

City striker Mario Balotelli echoed Kompany's sentiments that the club were rightful title winners as he also insisted he would be staying with the Manchester outfit.

"We are the best and that's why we won," said the Italian, who came on with the score at 2-1 against QPR. "We didn't play very well in a few games but the rest of season we played very well so we deserved to win.

"Personally I think too many people talked and too many people said bad things about me, and now they have just to shut up.

"Manchester City is a great club, a great team, I have great team-mates.

"I don't see my future far from here so I think I want to be here."
