Pablo Zabaleta admits Manchester City must set their sights on conquering Europe after winning the Premier League.
The Argentine ace scored the opening goal in City's dramatic 3-2 win over Queens Park Rangers last weekend as Roberto Mancini's men snatched the championship from the jaws of defeat in stoppage time.
City crashed out of the Champions League at the group stages last season and Zabaleta knows they must improve next season in Europe's premier competition if they are to establish themselves as a major force.
"The hard work starts now. We have to keep trying to achieve further success and win more title," said Zabaleta.
"We failed in the Champions League and must do better in that competition."
Zabaleta admits he felt for the club's supporters after putting them through all sorts of emotions in their last-gasp win over QPR.
"How we lived and won the league was something incredible, the players on the pitch knew our chances of winning the title were slipping away, but I think the people who suffered the most were those city fans in the stands and those watching at home," added Zabaleta.
"For the supporters 44 years is a long time without an important title.
"Eventually those last five minutes were meant to make history, it has gone down as the best ever final day in the 20 years of the Premier League."
