Vincent Komany was City’s savior as his wonder goal from outside the box secured his side the all important victory to take pole position in the Premier League title race. Now he opens up about his retirement.
An emotional Vincent Kompany was seen leaving the field following their victory over Leicester City as his wonder goal proved to be the decisive point of the game. City needed a win leapfrog Liverpool back into the pole position heading into the final gameweek.
The side had to work really hard for the goal as Leicester put up an impressive show in front of their goal, keeping City out for 70 minutes. While the title dream were just beginning to fade away from them, their captain Vincent Kompany unleashed a stunner from outside the box to send their team into the lead.
Kompany, who has spent 11 years with the club will be out of contract when the season ends. While a testimonial is planned for him in August, it looks to be seen whether a contract extension is in place for the defender at the club.
“We spoke with him and his agent. At the end of the season we are going to talk to him, clearly. He is an incredible human being and he has helped me a lot. Always I was sad I could not use him too much but we have always known we could count on him for his personality. This club is what it is because of people like Vincent. At the end of the season, after the FA Cup final, we will decide the best for both parties,” said Guardiola.
When Kompany was asked about his future, he went on to say that he didn’t know what was lined up in store for him but rather insisted on the point that he wasn’t looking to hand his boots anytime soon.
“I do not know at this point. [I’m] absolutely not [retiring]. I am going to play. Nothing is written in stone. I play every game in my career as if it’s the last game of my career,” said Komapny.
