Kompany Likes Pellegrini's Approach

Manchester City’s eloquent skipper, Vincent Kompany, has a good early impression of the club’s new manager, Manuel Pellegrini.

The former English champions are back in training ahead of their pre-season trips to South Africa, Hong Kong, Germany and Finland, and their assault on the English Premier League and Europe.

Pellegrini has moved to the Etihad with a big reputation, and in his dealings with him so far, Kompany has been impressed by the Chilean’s approach.

"It was also nice to start work with the new manager and I think his approach with the team today was really good,” Kompany told City’s official website on Monday night.

“It's important now to try and improve on the last campaign and make sure that whatever the new manager brings in, that we try and make it our own as quick as possible."

Belgian international skipper Kompany says he and his team-mates have come back from the off-season “looking very sharp.”

And he insists that they are ready to regain their status as England’s top team by winning the trophies that count.

"We're at a big club, so the only goal we can have is to win trophies," Kompany said.

 "There's about six or seven clubs in England alone in this situation, so it will be very competitive.

"Our objective this year is to win things and to play well together. We all know that we have to be very strong as a team and bond with each other."

Do you think Manchester City will be title contenders this season, or will Pellegrini need at least one campaign to bed in?
