They play together in Belgium’s national team, but they have been facing each other in the Premier League for years now.
The coming season, the fight between them will be even bigger, as both Manchester teams will be after the same trophies.
I want him to do well, except for in a few games this season. As long as we’re ahead of them, I’m happy for him to do really well
Vincent Kompany told ESPN, talking about Manchester United’s latest signing Romelu Lukaku.
The one thing you get when you have Romelu, is an incredible drive to improve and to score goals. It’s something really unique that I’ve been able to observe over the years because he’s been a player from Anderlecht, which is the same youth system where I come from and I’ve really followed his progress
the Manchester City captain said, impressed by his international teammate’s approach to the game.
The key thing with him is he believes he’s the best player in the world. It doesn’t matter whether he is or he isn’t, that’s the way he approaches every single training session, that’s the way he approaches every game
Kompany also said, praising the man who will do his best to beat City the coming season at every possible level.
If you think you are the best you can never really be satisfied with yourself and therefore you always keep working harder and harder and that’s what he does. He is a special player to have, and there will be a lot of competition this season
City’s skipper concluded.
