Guardiola: We’ll decide Kompany’s Man City future ‘over a beer’

Pep Guardiola says Vincent Kompany’s Manchester City future will be sorted ‘over a beer’.

The City captain’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season, with the Belgian having so far failed to sign a deal to extend his 11-year stay at the Etihad.

The 33-year-old scored a stunning winner as City beat Leicester on Monday night, leaving Guardiola’s side now just one win away from retaining the Premier League title.

Guardiola insists he will speak with the veteran defender at the end of the season, to discuss whether Kompany remains in the club’s plans for next season.

“We spoke with him and his agent. At the end of the season we are going to talk to him. He is an incredible human being and he helps me a lot,” Guardiola told his post-match press conference.

”Always I was sad I could not use him a lot but this club is what it is because of people like Vincent. At the end of the season after the FA Cup we will see.

“We will finish the season and after are going to talk. We spoke with him three weeks ago, one month ago. We spoke fluently. We are going to take a beer together and decide what is best especially for the club.”
