‘Manager material’, ‘Love this guy’ – Man City fans encouraged by club legend’s statement

The Manchester City fans are feeling confident in the Transfer Tavern ahead of a potentially season defining month for the club.

Pep Guardiola’s side may already have one hand firmly on the Premier League trophy, but City’s prestigious manager will not be content unless all four available trophies are sat in the trophy cabinet by the end of the campaign. The month of February will strongly dictate Guardiola’s success in achieving this incredibly ambitious objective, as The Citizens will face a Carabao Cup final, an FA Cup 5th round tie and a last-sixteen Champions League encounter.

Evidently, the next few weeks will be very important for the club, so Guardiola will be hoping to avoid adding any of his players to the growing list of injured absentees. One player who he will be keeping a particularly close eye on is City’s captain Vincent Kompany.

City’s Belgian skipper has desperately struggled to remain fit during the past few seasons as injuries have become a dominant and plaguing theme in his career.

In light of his injury troubles, Kompany has personally spoken out about his long-term future as a professional football player, and declared that he has no interest in pursuing his career away from The Etihad Stadium.

The City fans are certainly hoping that he has turned a corner with regards to his injury problems and can play out the remainder of the season without any further setbacks.

However, plenty of The Citizens faithful have taken a more pragmatic approach to the situation and urged the club to offer Kompany a role within the City setup as a backroom member of staff, whilst some have even suggested he could manage the club in the future.

Here’s what the City fans had to say about Kompany’s long term future on Twitter…
