Kompany's City Future Depends On One Condition
With Vincent Kompany's contract at Manchester City expiring at the end of the season, manager Pep Guardiola has claimed there is one issue that could prevent the club from offering their captain a new deal.
The Belgian defender joined the Citizens from Hamburg in 2009 and has played a key role in the club's success over the last few years.
Kompany recently started back-to-back Premier League games for the first time since August, as City defeated league leaders Liverpool and Southampton.
Guardiola has now revealed that the only thing that could hinder Kompany's chances of getting a new contract are his injury problems.
"Yeah, we are considering it, we are talking about that. I would like it," Guardiola was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
"He's our captain, 11 years here. We saw in the last two games the huge quality and personality he has to play. The only problem with Vincent is one - his injury problems.
"One against one, absolutely we're better when Vincent plays. Aymeric Laporte has a better left foot, every central defender has his own quality but there's no doubt Vincent has something special with his charisma, winning the duels.
"It's incredible, he's one of the best central defender I've ever seen. The problem is whether he's fit, always it is that."
