Kompany knew his City time was up after Leicester goal

Wednesday, 22 May, 2019

Departing City captain Vincent Kompany, who is leaving to become player/manager of Belgian side Anderlecht after 11 years at the Etihad, received a tribute from ardent City fan Noel Gallagher via a concert in South Korea during the celebrations.

A Manchester City-supporting cameraman thought his working day was done when he got set to drive home from the club's parade on Monday.

Pep Guardiola's men beat their title opponents by a single point, winning their second consecutive league title in the process.

Vieira was a keen admirer of Davies and Kompany is known to hold a similarly high opinion of him.

Despite the back-to-back Premier League champions' dominance in England, however, the former FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich mentor has now stated that he is aware City need to get their hands on the coveted UEFA Champions League trophy before they can be labelled a force to be reckoned with globally.

"You know how much this city kept me alive", said Kompany.

"They know me. Now is time for good dinners and good wine and enjoy this incredible season together".

"I think we're going to be on the top all the seasons but we know other teams play too and it's hard to win the Premier League".

"It is not about topping it, it is about being consistent and trying to achieve the best", he said shortly after collecting his medal.

"I've signed a new deal so the speculation has gone".

"Scan the history books, fan back to the big city clubs of Victorian times, linger on the red-shirted eras of the last 50 years. What more proof is there - we have been saying for six or seven months we want to keep him", Guardiola said.

"After we lost the Champions League quarter-final we had two days recovery and then played Tottenham and then to Old Trafford, then to Burnley".

Manager Pep Guardiola added: "We're going to miss him a lot. It turns out we really do all live in a sky blue world now".
