Vincent Kompany has come to the defence of Manchester City teammate Yaya Toure, who has been criticised for his form at the start of the Premier League season, Sky
The City captain argued that the team as a whole haven’t hit their best form as a result of the calibre of teams they’ve been up against, and asked that Toure’s past strong performances are considered before he is questioned. “He’s done so much for this club, he’s always played brilliantly,” Kompany said.
“He is always an important player – when he does well, the team does well,” he added. “We’ve had a tough start because we’ve played tough teams. You can’t deny that.
“He has set the standards very high for himself. But to say he is not at his best, then, I don’t agree. It’s so early in the season to call something like this. Things will improve for everyone.”
Toure has scored only once this season having netted 24 times last campaign as City claimed their second title in three years.
