Fighting for a Champions League spot in the Premier League, having done worse than last season in the Champions League itself, is not what the Manchester City owners and fans were hoping for this season, but Vincent Kompany looks confident that things will be very different next year, Pep Guardiola’s second at the Etihad Stadium.
You can’t compare Barcelona and Bayern Munich to Manchester City. Guardiola has come to City with a very unique style and he wants to continue that philosophy. We had to work to adapt to his style
the Belgium international told Play Sports, sure that the real test for the Catalan manager and of course his project at City will be next season.
I don’t want to sugar-coat it, but I think that next season we’ll see if his approach was the right one. It looks like everything is already here, but we are still a club under construction. Next season we’ll have to perform better
Kompany said. As for himself, he couldn’t be happier for having finally returned to action, starting five of City’s last six games.
I’m very happy. I’ve worked so hard, I’ve fought so hard for this. My motivation has always been high. I’ve never doubted myself. I’ve that happy feeling: look, I’m back again! I have always been rational. I know my situation and I know why I came back. As long as I feel that inner strength, I’ll be alright
the City captain said.
