Wish Pep Guardiola the pilot light burning, as he is for Manchester City-Tottenham stated that the with Vincent Kompany ‘much better’ went? “He is one of the coming days of his comeback,’ said Guardiola. The injury of the famous captain of the Citizens during the Manchesterderby was, however, not in the least encouraging. Moreover, the Spanish coach a rather confusing explanation about the nature of the injury.

“I have the impression that Kompany is his last chance during the derby, because the club will be located this winter, and reinforce with a central defender testifies,” Ian Cheeseman, ex-journalist of the BBC. “And even if he is fully fit to return – which I do not believe – still stand Nicolás Otamendi and John Stones in the ranking for him. Guardiola, who gave him a lot of chances, it seems all confidence in him is lost. Vincent is one of the heroes of this club and I would give him me can imagine in the role of ambassador, on tv or during travel. But on the sporty side, drags it all too long that problems. I see him in the club also do not leave this winter or at the end of the season. Who now wants to be a player in the last two years almost constantly injured lately?”

Stuart Brennan, a journalist from the Manchester Evening News, let the same sound: ‘Even if he is again in form would get, still he is not first choice. But he remains of course very important for this club, the fans cheer him every time.” A way to him in advance to say thank you for so many proven services.
