Kompany sets Man City target to win title again

London, United Kingdom: Vincent Kompany celebrated Manchester City’s Premier League title triumph with a Manchester United fan and then challenged the champions to win it again next season.
City clinched the title without kicking a ball as their arch rivals United slumped to a shock 1-0 defeat against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
Jay Rodriguez’s second half header for bottom of the table Albion sparked wild celebrations among City players and fans across Manchester.
City captain Kompany watched the match at the house of his Mancunian wife Carla Higgs, who invited her United-supporting father to join the party.
The gathering was captured in a social media post and Carla’s father is seen wearing a United shirt as Kompany celebrates.
“It shows how football is lived in Manchester as we have Reds in the family and Blues but today was a day for the Blues. It is banter. It’s been a great day,” Kompany said.
Kompany was caught on camera speaking with his City team-mates Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Walker on Face-time to celebrate the success, with Carla’s grand-mother heard asking him “Do they want to come round?”
Kompany has been at City since 2008, playing a key role in the club’s emergence as a genuine force in the English game. — AFP
