Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany on first Premier League goal since 2015: ‘If I had to work 15 years for one moment like this, I’d do it’

15 Apr

Vincent Kompany was happy to give something back to the fans after scoring in Manchester City’s 3-0 win over Southampton.

It was City captain’s first goal in 20 months, and further goals from Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero wrapped up a comfortable win to move Pep Guardiola’s side back to third in the league.

The injury-plagued Kompany has made just seven appearances so far this season, and celebrated passionately in front of the travelling fans.

“For me it’s always a long journey back,” he told BT Sport.

“I would have liked to be injured less in my career but every single time I’ve put in the hard work.

“I don’t complain and (I) just carry on. When this happens I feel like I’m giving something back to the fans and the team, and that’s what you see in those moments.”

He added: “If I had to work 15 years for one moment like this, I would do it not a problem.

“I’m really happy and I want to stay there.”

Kompany, who made his latest comeback against Chelsea at the start of the month before missing out against Hull, is eyeing a return to the FA Cup against Arsenal next week.

“I love an FA Cup and love a derby, so definitely (be ready),” he said.
