Man City skipper Vincent Kompany confident Manuel Pellegrini can bring success
Chants of “Roberto Mancini” echoing throughout the Etihad Stadium and support for the Italian boss from Manchester City fans brought an end to a tumultuous season for Manchester City. Roberto Mancini got sacked after a lack lustrous season, but the former Inter Milan manager got Manchester City what no one had before – glory.
For that reason Roberto Mancini will continue to be a hero in the eyes of Manchester City fans, something his successor, Manuel Pellegrini, needs to quickly acquire if he is to succeed at the Eastlands. Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has already been impressed by his new Chilean boss.
Vincent Kompany believes Manchester City will hit the ground running if they perform at their best level under Manuel Pellegrini. The former Real Madrid manager led Manchester City into their first training session of the preseason on Monday at the Carrington training ground.
All eyes will be on Manuel Pellegrini as the new boss of Etihad Stadium prepares his team for the preseason tour of South Africa, Hong Kong, Germany and Finland. Vincent Kompany believes Manuel Pellegrini has already bonded with the club and its players and is confident he will bring success to Manchester City next season.
“I think all of us have done some preparation work during the holidays because the guys look very sharp after a long break, so that's great,” Vincent Kompany told Manchester City’s official website.
“It was also nice to start work with the new manager and I think his approach with the team today was really good. It's important now to try and improve on the last campaign and make sure that whatever the new manager brings in, that we try and make it our own as quick as possible.”
Manchester City will attempt to reclaim the Premier League title from archrivals Manchester United next season. Vincent Kompany believes consistency is important, but Manchester City should aim for silverware since it is the pinnacle of success.
“We're at a big club, so the only goal we can have is to win trophies,” Vincent Kompany added. “There's about six or seven clubs in England alone in this situation, so it will be very competitive. Our objective this year is to win things and to play well together. We all know that we have to be very strong as a team and bond with each other.”
