When Manchester City won the Premier League title a decade ago with a goal from Sergio Aguero’s injury against Queens Park Rangers, the old saying “we are Man City, we will fight to the end” was born – and then become the club’s magic.
As the Etihad Stadium still saw an emotional, unlikely and unwritten final, it was not clear again as it was Sunday that it was pure Hollywood with all the sub-plots and twists.
While not as captivating and exciting as Aguero’s magical moment in his 3-2 victory on the similarly memorable last day of the 2011-12 campaign, Ilke Gundogan’s key contributions to this season’s success are ingrained in football. folklore.
Pep Cardiola had to secure his fourth league title in five seasons, as Pep Cardiola beat Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa 2-0 in the last 14 minutes – five minutes left. 36 sec.
With Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Wolverhampton, Gundogan’s narrow 81st minute put Jurgen Klopp behind the Reds. It was his second goal after scoring the first when Rodrygo equalized with a low shot.
“You should definitely be at the Sergio moment,” Bill Fotin said. “It shows our unbelief as a team, how much we love him, how much we fight against each other – and everything that is involved with this club.
“The team that Pep created, we always believed in him until the end. Many teams could not do that.
Photon is right, it can be argued that only Liverpool and Real Madrid are coming close at the moment.
With this confidence, the city can express its brilliance, even if it is equal or less from behind. With soul coupled with elegance, they have the hallmarks of success.
Cardiola used words like “legends” and “specials” to describe his page – there can be no doubt about that.
Manchester United, the champions of the City series, led by Sir Alex Ferguson, dominate the English Premier League. They have mercilessly amassed 93 points and 99 goals this season and their greatness must be acknowledged and respected, especially as they have once again thwarted Liverpool’s difficult challenge under pressure to win their sixth title since 2012.
Algerian City winger Riyad Mahrez tied the fourth title with African player Didier Troika, saying: “Liverpool are a great team and I know they hate us. They are tired of us and they would have won everything every year .
“But we’re here, and we’ll never leave – and we’ll be here next year, too.”
“I’ve never seen a team like Liverpool in my life,” Cardiola said in tears after winning the 10th title of his local career with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and City.
“They make us a better team, they make us think, they work hard and they do the quality we have.”
The midfielder Kondok, who got married during his unforgettable week, played under Klopp at Borussia Dortmund.
He added: “I do not think this league would have been so attractive if Liverpool had not played the great football they play. We have pushed each other to the limit. We must appreciate what they have done.”
While congratulating the Abu Dhabi-owned team, owner Sheikh Mansour bin Saeed Al Nahyan described the team as “the best” and Cardiola said: “We will defend our title over and over again.”
It is this intention, ambition and desire to develop further that makes City an exceptional team in today’s era.
Some experts will never accept it because of their cost or will not be satisfied until they win the Champions League, and their local achievements – the 14th biggest since Sheikh Mansour bought them in 2008 – should not be underestimated by the battle in Europe. .
Despite not being able to win their 20th top flight title, the same goes for Liverpool and their extraordinary efforts in this campaign.
Klopp said they played in a “crazy season” and it is hard to imagine a team approaching the four historic titles again.
There is no doubt that Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham, Arsenal and Newcastle, backed by Saudi Arabia, will excel in the future.
Liverpool may have been disappointed to finish second after winning the FA Cup and League Cup, but no shame after the Titanic battle for first place.
When City lost the title by one point on the final day three years ago, they beat Tottenham to win the European Cup for the sixth time.
“Of course, the loss of the league strengthened the desire to do it right next week,” Klopp said on Saturday against Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
If history repeats itself in Paris – and completes a trilogy, it will be equally well-deserved.
It also highlights how Liverpool and City have raised the bar over the past five years with their desire to be competitive and respected in European football.
Others should try to fit this trait and not condemn it.
“What I have learned about life is that if you are on the road, if you keep going, you will be rewarded,” Globe said.
“The only thing you can do in this league is that you have to keep improving. We have to keep going and be a tough team to play with. Playing in the league with Manchester City is crazy and difficult, but that does not stop me from trying again next season.
The match promises that he has not yet promised to extend his contract to next season – especially with Liverpool strikers Cardiola such as Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
There is also the arrival of Erling Holland, the points scorer for the Federation and the Premier League.
