Vincent Kompany inks a six-year extension with EPL champions Manchester City
Manchester City centre back Vincent Kompany has been rewarded with a new six-year deal by the club. This comes after the 26-year-old recorded a superb form last season. The Manchester City skipper also played a pivotal role in taking the Eastlands to their first Premier League title in 44 years last season.
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has been full of praise for his world class centre back. Vincent Kompany was already expected to receive a huge transfer contract with a luxurious pay as his last contract neared its expiration.
Roberto Mancini believes Vincent Kompany will play a crucial role in bringing further success to Manchester City. This is why Vincent Kompany has been handed the longest deal in Manchester City’s history. This is clearly shows how much faith Manchester City has in Vincent Kompany.
Vincent Kompany is exuberant over continuing his career with Manchester City. In an interbiew to Manchester City’s official website, Vincent Kompany expressed his trust in the club and promised to continue playing at his best for the Rising Blue Moon.
“Hopefully in the future I will have a bigger impact than I already have,” Vincent Kompany said. “There are so many more trophies to win at this club that is why it makes it so special.
“For me if you are good somewhere then there is no reason to look elsewhere. Man City as a project is not just a project of the owners or the people employed by the club; it is also my project.
“I have been here since the beginning and I have seen everything at the club change inside and out. I have the feeling that I have contributed to it too. It is good to know that I can be at City for another six years. It is a compliment that the club feels so highly of me.”
Vincent Kompany, who was brought to Manchester City by Mark Hughes from Hamburg in the summer of 2008, has transformed the Eastlands into an English powerhouse. The Belgian international helped Manchester City to an FA Cup victory last season, which was also their first trophy in 33 years. Nonetheless, the joy of winning the Premier League title outlasts the FA Cup victory.
“Our title win was amazing and one of the best feelings ever for us and the fans,” Vincent Kompany said. “That last game against QPR will be a very special part of City's history for the next 50 or 100 years but now is the time to look forward.
“We have laid the foundations and now we want to win more. If we do that then we can be one of the most successful clubs for a long time to come and that is the aim. I can't wait to get started again. I am really excited about the season ahead.”
