Getting the three points on Sunday to finish with exactly 100 clearly means a good deal to the Spaniard, who noted after City's 3-1 steamrollering of Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday that it would "finish this nearly flawless season".
"Ninety-seven points, a lot of goals, a lot of wins, that is a effect of the season we have done", he told reporters, as quoted by BBC.
The citizens have become the team with the most goals, most wins and most points in a season in Premier League history with one game remaining. "I hope next year is going to be bright and much better". To be alongside United in the 1990s or Liverpool in the 1980s you have to win more.
"I am not the right guy to say to him what is the best for him".
Having finally got their hands on the Premier League trophy for the third time in six years, something which the vast majority of us knew would happen since before Christmas, it has all been about breaking records.

The news comes as a blow to both Liverpool and Gomez himself, with Joyce adding that he is likely to miss this summer's World Cup.
"He was the only guy last season who, when his contract finished, we extended for one more year, because we believed he could help us this season".
He said: "He helped this club make a step forward and hopefully we can make a good game and dedicate it to him".
After the game, he was presented with a commemorative shirt on the pitch, and was joined by older brother Kolo.
Toure added: 'Now I think we are going to go for it on Sunday. "I will be released, to go and assess my duty in a different club".
Leroy Sane provided assists for all three City goals. "I'll be back for sure".
