The dramatic long-distance duel on the last day of the Premier League made the headlines in Great Britain.
Following a two-goal deficit, Manchester City secured the English championship again with a late 3-2 win over Aston Villa thanks to double goalscorer Ilkay Gündogan.
Liverpool FC finished second in the table, a point behind City.
This is what the English media write:
The Telegraph: "Manchester City are Premier League champions.
But that simple, albeit magnificent, statement does not come close to capturing the desperation, the delirium, the unimaginable drama of that extraordinary comeback against Aston Villa that ultimately yielded their fourth title in five seasons.”
"Daily Mail": "That was a remarkable comeback.
The last man who was so important to Man City on the last day of the game now has a statue in front of the stadium.
Maybe one day Gündogan will get one too.
He scored two goals, the first and the last.
Everyone was important but Gündogan got the ball rolling and kept it rolling until City won the league.”
"Guardian": "By winning, Klopp's team ended the season as the only Premier League team at home without defeat and with an impressive 92 points.
In 24 of the last 29 seasons that would have been enough to win the championship.”
The Times: "For this season at least, a most illustrious rivalry has been decided.
Just as City and Liverpool have engaged in their struggle, they have taken football to a new level.
It was like the best of Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal, beautiful and captivating, a head-to-head race that was a privilege for all viewers, and with a final act that had an intriguing narrative all of its own.”
Daily Mirror: One point short... again!
Liverpool beat Wolves but agonizingly lose in title race.”
The Sun: 'Man City narrowly deny Liverpool Premier League title on dramatic day'
The Independent: "With echoes of 2012, roar and relief, Manchester City celebrate their eighth English league title."
After winning the title with Manchester City in the Premier League, Gündogan will now be delayed in the training camp of the German national team in Spain.
National coach Hansi Flick had already announced when announcing his 26-strong squad for the upcoming Nations League games against European champions Italy, European Championship finalists England and Hungary that the 31-year-old, as English champion, would only be going to Marbella a day later because of the celebrations have to come.
"If Man City wins the championship and they have another party on Monday, Ilkay won't come until Tuesday," said Flick.
The rest of the squad around Captain Manuel Neuer will arrive on Monday.Keywords:
