Manchester, England - Manchester staged a Premier League trophy parade for the fourth straight year on Monday when Man City players celebrated the club's second title in three years with an open-top bus tour through packed city-center streets.
With incessant morning rain giving way to blue skies, tens of thousands of City fans turned out to honor the team a day after its 2-0 victory over West Ham clinched the league championship. City also won the League Cup in manager Manuel Pellegrini's first season in charge.
Looking down on flag-waving, horn-blowing supporters lining the streets, City captain Vincent Kompany said “Manchester is blue today - and it's a pretty sight.”
City and fierce rival Manchester United have each won two of the last four Premier League titles.
