After Manchester City secured their third Premier League title in the last 4 seasons, the backroom workforce and numerous individuals of the first-team squad descended on the training centre to celebrate their triumph.
On the night Manchester United fell to defeat to Leicester City at Old Trafford, which confirmed Manchester City’s status as Champions, pictures, and videos were posted across social media showcasing the celebrations that were ongoing.
Beer, wine, pizzas, and plenty of music were on show, however, a week later, a new video has come to light and Manchester City fans are definitely loving it!
It’s none other than Pep Guardiola himself having himself a big smoke and belting out the lyrics to ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’ by Oasis at the training hub.
Speaking after the celebration during a press conference in advance of the game against Newcastle in the Premier League, Pep Guardiola was quizzed on the celebrations, to which he responded, “We drink a bit, dance, hug, at 11:30 pizzas arrived and that was an exceptional moment of the night. In England, the parties are simply alcohol, not food, I don’t know why. So when the pizza arrived was the best moment.”
A little bit more than just the dancing and hugging, Pep?
The variety of phrases from the media the night after the celebration also kept it fairly lowkey, however, this is Manchester, we do things differently.
The Telegraph labeled the title party as nothing more than “just a few beers together” from a squad with work still to do this season.
But for Pep Guardiola, there truly is still work to do, and with that could come plenty more of the scenes above, as Manchester City gear up for their first-ever Champions League final on May twenty-ninth against Chelsea in Portugal.
