Manchester City captain , Vincent Kompany has said he intends to remain in football, after he calls time on his career.
The Belgium international has been with City since 2008 and has made over 300 appearances for the club , however, he has been a victim of high profile injuries over the time he has spent.
Kompany has two years left on his contract with City and says he intends to remain in football when he retires.
“I don’t know where I will be in football when I finish but it’s 100 per cent certain I will remain in football. It’s my passion,” he said.
“It’s like studying to be a doctor, doing all your exams and thinking ‘I’m 32 now, I am not going to be a doctor’.
“I’ve played and lived this game since I was six years old so I don’t see a reason why I should throw all that experience away all of a sudden.
“I have got good contact with the younger people here and I just love bringing across my experience and how I see certain things. I have learned from the best from their mistakes as well as my own and hopefully I will be better because of that.”
