Manchester City will conquer Europe one day, claims Vincent Kompany.
Although the Blues could win the FA Cup for the second time in three years this season, their defence of the Premier League title has been hugely disappointing as rivals United were confirmed as champions on Monday night. Roberto Mancini’s men now trail the Reds by a staggering 16 points, and they have just five matches left to play.
City also failed to progress in the Champions League for the second successive season, after finishing bottom of their qualifying group. Although they were in a pool containing two of the semi-finalists, Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid, they were unable to win a single game having drawn three and lost three of their fixtures.
So despite their trip to Wembley to face Wigan Athletic next month, there is still plenty of doom and gloom at the Etihad Stadium. Kompany, though, has made an attempt to lift these spirits. Considering the progress the club has made both on and off the pitch in recent years, the inspirational captain believes more glory is inevitable including in Europe.
“I have five years left and if you knew the plans for this team for the future, I consider that to be a real objective,” the 27-year-old told RMC. “We will win the Champions League one day. It is inevitable. The same question arose concerning the Premier League and we did it. With the investment being made in all areas of the club, that will surely come.”
