They’re desperate to have modern legends like other clubs
You're both right. Kompany is a legend, but city want recognisable icons of the game who are city legends.He is literally the definition of a modern legend in football terms.
Five Minute Foden Road."The road that symbolically connects the CFA's youth and community pitches with our First Team Centre has been renamed ‘Vincent Kompany Crescent’."
Because Kompany is a symbol of their outstanding youth setup? Think that road should be called Sancho cul-de-sac or something similar.
The soft arse could surely have took the field for a small cameo. Andy Cole played in the recent legends game & he's recovering from a kidney transplant.Carrick, Scholes, Giggs, Butt, Van Persie, Gary and Phill Neville are playing today in his testimonial. Will be very interesting. Also he is injured and is not playing in his own testimonial
Going off there previous innovations with Tunnel Cam & the mash up kit i thought they'd wait until all 3 & Pep had left & then build a Mount Rushmore type monstrosity.I wonder who was the last City player to have a statue/ road named after him.
I can imagine David Silva and Aguero will get the same.
Vidic better player.
Rio read the game well but can we stop this nonsense about tackling being a sign of not being able to read the game? It's absolute nonsense.Going off there previous innovations with Tunnel Cam & the mash up kit i thought they'd wait until all 3 & Pep had left & then build a Mount Rushmore type monstrosity.
No comparison to a prime Rio for me. Kompany get's a lot of credit for his lunging tackles. You very rarely saw Rio do this as he read the game so well.
Kompany as City captain: four league titles, four League Cups and one FA Cup (including domestic treble). Was at the club for 11 seasons and captained it for 8 of them.I meant more that they’re desperate to act like other big clubs with statues, roads named after them and the like. He doesn’t quite hit the mark for that in my opinion.
