Kompany signs long-term Man City contract
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has signed a new six-year contract with the Premier League champions, BBC Sport has reported.
Kompany captained City to victory in the league last season, helping Roberto Mancini’s side edge past defending champions Manchester United by the slimmest of margins. The two teams finished level on points but City took the trophy by virtue of a better goal difference.
The Belgium international scored a vital goal in the last few weeks of the season when the two Manchester sides met at City’s Etihad Stadium. Kompany scored the only goal of the game to put the sides level on points, where they stayed for the remainder of the campaign.
Kompany has been at City since August 2008, signed by the current Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Hughes. The 26-year-old has made more than 160 appearances for City and was part of the side that won the FA Cup in 2011. Kompany was also named Premier League Player of the Season for his performances in leading City to their first league title in more than 40 years.
