‘Proud of my captain’, ‘He bleeds blue’ – Man City fans react to Vincent Kompany’s dream five-a-side team


Vincent Kompany has hailed four of his former Manchester City teammates as he reflected on his illustrious spell at the Etihad.

Speaking to Rio Ferdinand’s FIVE podcast, Kompany was asked to name the best player he played with at City, before he named four in response.

He answered: “I have to go four. Got to put David Silva. You talk about effort in training versus effort in matches, but David was always effortless in games. He just made you look average as a defender, when you’re closing down he commits you, go super aggressive and run him off the ball.

But he never commits, waits for you to commit. If you step right he goes left, if you step left he goes right. So effortless. Tight spaces were big spaces for him.

In my opinion also Yaya [Toure]. His potential, I loved him but he could have been, he could have had everything. He could have played centre-back and been the best centre-back. He had everything. Left foot, right foot, he had a through ball that was delicate, could win duels, running at people from midfield which is rare, running past them, could finish.

“Then you’ve got Kevin De Bruyne and Kun Aguero.”

Picking his team, he said: “Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne, got to put Kun Aguero, got to put David Silva. Can I be coach? And Yaya [Toure], no keeper, I don’t need a keeper.”

These Kompany’s five-a-side team were shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the supporters.
