Kompany in no hurry to leave City
Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany is eyeing a long-term role in the future success of the reigning Premier League champions.
The Belgian international played a key role in the club's first title triumph since 1968, with his exploits throughout the campaign as City's captain earning him widespread acclaim. Kompany is rumoured to emerged from it all as a top transfer target for a number of major European clubs, but the centre-back has moved quickly to reassure fans that he has no intention of walking away from the project at the Etihad Stadium. He is convinced City's passionate supporters won't have to wait another 44 years to follow up last season's achievements which saw them pip rivals Manchester United to top spot in the most dramatic fashion imaginable on the final day. Kompany is also setting his sights on Champions League glory, particularly after witnessing Chelsea's recent final victory over Bayern Munich and United's European successes in the past. He told The People: "I'm happy in Manchester. Lots of people want me to talk about moving but what interests me is Manchester City. "The project here is not just a sporting one. It will bring a lot to the city and to the people. "We can't stop with the title. We want to win the Champions League. "Is it possible in three to four years? Maybe not, but when I see what's been achieved at the club in the last few years, nothing is impossible. "The project is to take the club back to its former glories but people won't see this for perhaps another 10 years. I'm happy to be part of all that."
