Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has described captain Vincent Kompany as special, as he celebrates 10 years at the club.
The Belgium international joined Manchester City on August 22 2008 from Hamburg, for £7.65 million and has won three EPL titles, three league cups, an FA Cup and two community shields.
The 32-year-old has faced injury problems since Guardiola joined City, notching 28 appearances in two years he has spent at the club.
But the City boss paid tribute to Kompany’s achievements over the last decade and said he was proud to work with the Belgium international.
“When one guy is with the same club for 10 years it’s because he is something special,” he told CityTV.
“So you have to be so proud like I am to work with you this period.
“Now will be our third year – thank you so much.”
Kompany’s team-mates joined the celebration of his decade at City, with Claudio Bravo saying: “Very few players have the privilege, to have a career like you have, with this club.”
Benjamin Mendy added: “You were born with this club!
“You are a great guy, a good man, a good captain with a lot of experience.”
