Vincent Kompany testimonial: Man City legend’s special occasion live on Sky Sports
As I told you last week, I decided to move this blog to Wednesdays to get away from talking immediately after the results.
Vincent Kompany knows his testimonial will be an emotional affair, but jokes he is most looking forward to seeing who has remained in shape. A host of Manchester City and Premier League legends are set to turn out for Kompany’s testimonial at the Etihad Stadium
In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports ahead of the game, the 33-year-old joked he wished the injured Leroy Sane could play and cause Gary Neville a headache at right-back, and is also eager to see how his former team-mates are shaping up after time out of the game.
He said: “There are so many old faces, and I want to see who is still in shape and who is not anymore! I remember a lot of conversations in the dressing room… ‘What are you going to do when you stop playing? ”
“Nigel de Jong is still playing, so I’ll have to wait for another time with him, but I think he was going to go the other way! Those you think go one way, they don’t, and the people you think go the other way, they don’t! ”
“I’m looking forward to seeing whose in shape mainly, and reminiscing about the stories we still remember from the dressing room. ”
“It’s unfortunate that Leroy Sane is out with a knee injury, because I would have put him on Gary Neville. My goal was to put the fastest winger I could find on Gary Neville’s side! Unless he goes and hides at centre-back, we’ll see.”No tags for this post.
