‘We WILL win the Champions League’: Captain Vincent Kompany insists the future is bright at Manchester City

By Paddy von Behr

Skipper Vincent Kompany is in no doubt Manchester City will soon win the Champions League, despite a disappointing campaign.

The Citizens watched Manchester United regain the Premier League title on Monday night, following defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

And, despite falling at the group stage of Europe’s elite club competition, the Belgian is certain City will conquer the continent in the future.

“We will win the Champions League one day,” Kompany told RMC. “It is inevitable.

“The same question arose concerning the Premier League and we did it.

“With the investment being made in all areas of the club, that will surely come.”

Kompany was selected for the PFA Premier League team of the year for the last two seasons, but missed out on a nomination for the player of the year this time.

However, the Belgian remains a key player for City and sees his future at the Etihad Stadium, despite rumours linking him to big-spending Paris Saint Germain.

“I am fine at City,” he said. “When you know the plans of the club, you can only stay.

“From the moment you consider that you can win as many trophies at City as at any other club, there is no reason to look elsewhere.

“Could I go to Paris Saint-Germain? No, I am a supporter of Marseille.”

The immediate target for City is next month’s FA Cup final against Wigan Athletic – Roberto Mancini’s side’s final shot at silverware for this campaign.

And Kompany insists he and his teammates are fully prepared to see off a tricky Latics side and finish the season strongly.

“Our season will also depend on the cup final,” added the 27-year-old. “If we win, it’ll be fine.

“It will not be easy. Wigan are a team who play good football with their Spanish coach.

“There is a risk but we were fully awake during the game we played against them recently. We will not be surprised.”
