Before City's players got to lift the trophy, they managed to knock it off its podium and on to the floor.
The Terriers produced an inspired defensive display to keep the champions out and boost their chances of survival - on the day Vincent Kompany lifted the Premier League trophy for the home side.
They couldn't mark the occasion with a potentially record-breaking win - City surprisingly drew 0-0 with relegation-threatened Huddersfield - but it didn't stop them basking in the glory of a stylish and runaway title triumph that was clinched in record-equaling time two weeks ago.
The crowning moment on a lovely, sunny day in east Manchester came when Vincent Kompany raised aloft the biggest prize in English football, the third time the long-serving City captain has done so in seven seasons.
Therefore with Toure's family living in the North West of England, three Premier League sides could attract the player for free with the likes of Burnley, Everton and Huddersfield Town and as per reports two of them, Everton and Huddersfield have already contacted the player over a transfer.
Like Toure, David Silva has been key in City's rise, the Spaniard also winning three Premier League titles at the club, as well as a trio of EFL Cups. "It was a massive team effort and I am really proud".
I'm truly so happy.

Martirosyan landed a few hard shots in the first and connected on a good combination just before the devastating final sequence. Gennady Golovkin says there is a question mark regarding whether a rematch with Canelo Alvarez can be booked for September.
"I've got good people around me and good teammates".
Kompany has made a total of 20 starts for City in all competitions this season.
"It doesn't seem real; you're used to watching it on the TV", Stones added.
"I think we've thoroughly deserved getting the title and how we've done it - the points and everything".
"It helps us to understand, this game for example, how hard it will be next season". "You never know if you are going to win, but I had no doubt what I had to do".
