Kompany signs new Man City contract
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has committed his long-term future to the club by signing a new five-year contract, the Guardian has reported.
The deal will keep Kompany at the Etihad Stadium until 2019, and it worth £120,000 per week, with a number of add-ons. It comes just days after teammate David Silva signed a new contract with the club.
Kompany joined Man City in the summer of 2008 from Anderlecht, and immediately became a first team regular before taking over the captaincy. As skipper, he has led the club to two Premier League titles and both English domestic cups. Upon confirming his stay, the Belgian admitted that he is targeting three more titles over the next five years.
“To be honest I didn’t have to think twice about it,’ he said. ‘It’s just about continuity for me – I’ve always wanted to stay at this club for a long time. Looking to the future I can see the potential. To be part of the history we’ve built together. It’s just a natural thing for me to stay longer here and win more trophies.
“I’m not happy with one or two. I want more. I want to be able to look back in my career and say that I won four or five at City. It’s a tough ask, particularly when you know how difficult the league is. But it’s something I’m ready to fight for every day. I’ve always said this is just the start. You look around the whole club and there are signs of it being a great club to be at.’
