Vincent Kompany sign new 5-year contract with Manchester City

Captain Vincent Kompany has signed a new five-year deal, which will tie him to Manchester City until 2019.

Kompany joined City from Hamburg in 2008 and has been instrumental in the clubs success in recent years, winning the Premier League twice, the FA Cup and Capital One League Cup.

Appointed skipper in 2011, Kompany has made over 240 appearances for the club and is pleased to have committed his future to Manuel Pellegrini’s side.
“When I arrived in 2008, I could never have dreamed that we could achieve what we have over the last six years but, for me, this is just the start of the journey,” Kompany said on the club’s website.

“This team is stronger now than it’s ever been; we have competition for places in every position and a dressing room full of exceptional, motivated people who want to continue making history together.

“Lifting two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup have been four of the best days of my life but I believe that there are many more of these occasions ahead.

“There are so many new landmarks and records to chase and I hope signing this new contract is taken as a statement of intent that I want to keep fighting for trophies for this special club.”

“We have a common goal and so much to look forward to – a family of clubs, the opening of City Football Academy, exciting players coming through our youth system – why would I go anywhere else?”
