Kompany admits back-to-back titles ‘is special’

Vincent Kompany says winning back-to-back titles with Manchester City ‘is special’.

Man City were crowned champions last weekend following a final day win at Brighton, pipping runners-up Liverpool to the title by just a single point in what was one of the most epic title battles in recent years.

The title was Kompany’s fourth since joining the club in 2008, though the City captain admits maintaining focus and retaining the Premier League for the first time makes this season’s achievement extra ‘special’.

“My style is pretty simple,” Kompany told Sky Sports.

“Every now and then when things are getting too comfortable, I go a little aggressive in training or I speak up and say what I think.

“But the main thing is that these guys, together with the manager, are always able to understand what the priority is. We focus on winning games.

“Winning one title was not enough, it had been done before. Back to back – that is special.”

Kompany and City could yet win further silverware when they face Watford in the FA Cup final this weekend.

Having secured the League Cup with a penalty shoot-out success over Chelsea in February, Pep Guardiola’s side are bidding to become the first side in English football history to complete the domestic treble.
