Vincent Kompany said he "gave his all" to Manchester City when he said goodbye to the club in front of 100,000 fans.
The long-time captain announced on Sunday left City after eleven successful years to take over the role of the player manager at Anderlecht.
As a result, the 33-year-old was the show's star when City celebrated the historic high on Monday with an open bus parade through downtown Manchester.
When the parade culminated with a stage show in front of Manchester Cathedral, the Belgian said: "I have given everything I could do for this club. I can not tell you how proud I am of it. I have nothing left. I gave everything. "
Kompany's future had been speculative for some time, but he realized that the time had come to go when he scored a spectacular winner against Leicester earlier this month.
Kompany's long-range shot in the penultimate game of the season made City in one game retain their Premier League title.
He said, "The moment this ball became" Top Bins "against Leicester, I knew I was done! I could not do anything better, it felt right."
The Belgian now expects the club to become even more successful in the future.
Kompany, who finished his speech with a "mic drop," said, "Eleven years in this club, what a journey we've made. We have always been a great club without cutlery, but now we have silverware and I am really proud.
"This group of players – we've given you something you've earned for a long time, now this team is ready to do much more."
Kompany won 10 important trophies during his time with City and ended Saturday's FA Cup win over Watford.
Manager Pep Guardiola paid tribute to his captain and advised him to return to City in the future.
He said, "I think we'll miss him a lot, I'll miss him, but he'll see us in the future because he'll come back sooner or later.
"It's the best way to say goodbye to an incredible season together, he was a real captain, he helped us a lot, we'll show him how we love him."
Guardiola, wearing a flat beanie in honor of the club's late president, Bernard Halford, said he had thought "zero" for next season.
He said, "Now is the time to have good food and wine and enjoy this incredible season together, we'll think about it in a few weeks and now we'll enjoy what we've done."
The organizers estimated the number of visitors at around 100,000. Banners labeled "City" as "The Fourmidables" reflect three times the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup along with the Community Shield.
It was the first time a team had defeated all domestic trophies. City also joined the winning women's team, which won an FA Cup and a League Cup doubles.
