One of the great legends of all Manchester City history, defender Vincent Kompany, a symbol of the club’s era of success since the start of Arab investment that has been in the club for more than a decade, can leave the Sky Blues at the end of this season.
Kompany’s contract with City ends in July after the end of the current season and coach Pep Guardiola admits the defender may leave the English club.
“I think it’s a problem that we need to talk to Vincent. We have no doubt about his quality. We miss him when he can not play. He is our captain and in the field, he gives something extra that only a few defenders around the world can give us, “said the coach in an interview with the official website of Manchester City.
“He’s incredible, but the reality is that in the last five years, he has played a few games, that’s the situation we need to put on the table with the club. We will discuss with his agent and work to find the best solution to both sides”, completed.
“I would like (to keep Kompany in the club) He has something special, personality on and off the field, he speaks six or seven languages, so he can communicate well, we need people who have done a lot in the past to help new players in the next generations. He helped us build the team we have today, “he concluded.
Kompany has won three Premier League titles, three English League Cups, one FA Cup and two England Supercups with City. However, in recent years, the injuries have disrupted the life of the defender, who has made few starts in matches. This season, for example, he only played nine games in the Premier League. If he really leaves the club, City will have to run after a defender, because it may be the worst position for the Citizens in the current season.
