Manchester City fans in the Transfer Tavern have been responding to the news that star duo, Kevin De Bruyne and Vincent Kompany, have been called up to represent Belgium in their upcoming friendly fixture against Saudi Arabia. Although the City fans are all saying the same thing about Kompany’s inclusion.
Manchester City are in devasting form at the moment. The club sit head and shoulder above the rest in the Premier League table as they canter towards the league title. Pep Guardiola’s side will also be keen to add the Champions League trophy to the League Cup and Premier League that everyone has tipped them to win. The Citizens were drawn against Liverpool in the quarterfinal draw earlier this morning as they hope to advance into the competition’s last four.
The only thing that City fans have to worry about at the moment, other than Liverpool in Europe, is injuries. Club captain, Vincent Kompany, has an unfortunate injury record since becoming a Sky Blue, although it hasn’t stopped him from going down as one of the Premier League’s best defenders and a Manchester City legend in his own right. As Kompany looks set to go off and play in a friendly fixture for his country, the Etihad faithful will all have their fingers crossed that their dominant defender comes back in good nick and ready to fight both domestically and in Europe as the season reaches its conclusion.

Kompany does not need to prove anything to anyone, especially in a friendly, shouldn't play
