It has been a remarkable season for Manchester City and Pep Guardiola.

The Citizens have led the Premier League for the vast majority of the season and finally clinched the title after West Brom defeated Manchester United on Sunday.

A lot of praise for their remarkable season has gone to Guardiola, and Vincent Kompany stated that he has helped him improve as a player.

"One of the first things I noticed within the first month was I was saying if I had met him when I was 18 or 20 I would have been the perfect player for him and would have been able to improve so much," he said.

"Any player that has played under him has had success because of him and the way he has improved them as individuals and unlock their full potential.

"At my age, I can still learn and I enjoy every moment. We share one thing which he has been able to transfer to the team and that's the hunger and desire to never be satisfied."

GARY LINEKER HAS HIS SAY ON GUARDIOLA

Lineker has been active in his praise since Guardiola made the move to England.

After Man City were officially crowned champions on Sunday, Lineker remarked how Guardiola has not just been good for Man City, but he's been good for English football as well.

"I think Guardiola is great for our game," Lineker stated.

"So many people said he can't play his style of football in the Premier League, I always thought that was nonsense.

"I am glad he's stuck with his principles that he came through and his style of football has not only proved you can win with it, but it is so beautiful to watch at times.

"I think we will always be grateful in the Premier League and in English football because we all know success is copied and imitated by other teams for a start, other coaches, children playing the game and that can only be good.

"Eventually Pep Guardiola's legacy, will be that he massively improved not just Manchester City and brought great success to the club, but also to English football."

High praise indeed.

But fans are not entirely convinced.

Some agree with Lineker, thinking that Guardiola will have a long lasting impact on English football.

But others think he has bought his success at the club, and that he could not have the same impact at a lower league club.
