After 90minutes of football I saw streams of City fans leaving the stadium. Many wereupset. Some in tears. Others dejected. Many angry. They couldn't bear to watch their team suffer yet again.

But what those fans missed in injury time will go down in Manchester City folklore as the greatest five minutes in their history.

As the winners podium was being assembled in Sunderland for United to reclaim their prize, two quick goals at the Etihad ensured one of the greatest comebacks in sport.

In a matter of seconds everything changed. City fans, who moments ealier had left the ground in despair, were suddenly dancing with pure delight. Again, I saw supporter weeping. But this time they were tears of joy.


Manchester City celebrates while United nurse their blues

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson congratulated Manchester City on their achievement.

He told BBC Sport:

Nobody expected that. Everybody expected City to win, but they did it against 10 men for half an hour and with five extra minutes to help them.

But I congratulate City on winning the league. Anybody who wins it deserves it, because it's a long haul.

At the end of our game our players didn't actually know the results. Now, they're really disappointed, I'm glad to say.

There's no other way they should be. They conducted themselves brilliantly today. Their performance level was good. I'm pleased at our performance this season. Eighty-nine points would win most leagues. It wasn't our turn today.
