Guardiola and Kompany to decide City skipper´s future at the end of season
By Francis Joseph
Pep Guardiola says he will meet Vincent Kompany for a beer at the end of the season to decide if the Manchester City captain will stay at the club. Kompany’s screamer earned City a 1-0 home win against Leicester City on Monday, putting the defending champions back above Liverpool in the table.
A 13th straight win in the Premier League means City will be champions again if they extend that streak further with victory at Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday. Kompany has already won three Premier League titles with City since joining from Hamburg in 2008 but his contract expires at the end of the season.
The Belgium defender has strongly suggested he wants to stay at the club and he has started all of City’s past three Premier League games, helping them keep clean sheets in each win. And Guardiola said he will sit down with City’s skipper to discuss his future after his team face Watford in the FA Cup final later this month.”We spoke with him and his agent.
At the end of the season we are going to talk to him,” Guardiola said to BBC Sport. “He is an incredible human being and he helps me a lot.”Always I was sad I could not use him a lot but this club is what it is because of people like Vincent.
At the end of the season, after the FA Cup, we will see.”We will finish the season and after are going to talk. We spoke with him three weeks ago, one month ago. We spoke fluently.”We are going to take a beer together and decide what is best especially for the club.”
