Departing Vincent Kompany tells Manchester City: ‘I have given everything’

Watford tactics Departing Vincent Kompany tells Manchester City: ‘I have given everything’

The Belgian called time on his 11-year stay at City on Sunday to become player-manager at Anderlecht - the club where he started his career nearly two decades ago.

He said: "The moment that ball against Leicester went "top bins" I knew I was done!"

"Vincent Kompany's departure has left a hole in the centre of Manchester City's defence and it looks as if Pep Guardiola has turned his attentions to signing Leicester's Harry Maguire", said Betway's Alan Alger.

Manchester City completed the first ever domestic treble in men's English football on Saturday evening, as they thrashed Watford 6-0 at Wembley to win the FA Cup.

"It is not about topping it, it is about being consistent and trying to achieve the best", he said shortly after collecting his medal. We were always a great club without silverware but now we've got silverware and I'm really proud.

The 48-year-old Spaniard said in the immediate aftermath of Saturday's rout the domestic treble is more hard than winning the Champions League because it demands greater consistency over a gruelling season.

Despite having won a historic domestic treble, the Spaniard has admitted that his time in England will be judged on how his team fare in Europe.

"This is the way I want to leave, I love you - I'm out".

He is moving into management and it could be that his career off the pitch leads him back to Manchester in the future.

While Liverpool pieced together a magnificent campaign that saw them finish with 97 points to finish second behind champions City, Aldridge suggested Jurgen Klopp's side will struggle to match their efforts of this season when they target title success once again next year.

Manager Pep Guardiola added: "I think we're going to miss him a lot". He was a real captain, he helped us a lot. "Now we are going to enjoy what we have done".

"Now it's time to have good food, good wine and enjoy this incredible season together".
