Kompany urges teammates to keep fighting

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has rallied his teammates to continue fighting hard in order to secure the Premier League title.

City are miles ahead of the pack in the league table, currently 12 points ahead of Manchester United with a game in hand.

Many have already written off the league title as City’s, but Kompany has warned that it’s not over until its over, and wants his side to continue their good work and not lose their focus.

“I don’t know if everyone will remember but it was six games left and we were eight points behind, so that’s why I am always the first to come in and say, ‘No guys, we can’t really take the foot off the gas’.

“I really don’t want that.

“We push, we push, we push, and no one has the right to let their performance down or their guard down.

“It’s the first time we have been ahead like this.

“Honestly, I don’t feel too much difference, but it’s a bit too early to draw any conclusions.

“But I do feel like we have been in much more high-pressure environments, (such as) when we had to play United and we were three points behind.

“Those are the games that are completely different to any others you will play in your life.

“But, at this moment in time, we have got the chance.

“We are in a position where we can just focus on our football, not anything else, and winning the game and having the performance at the same time.

“It’s a bit different, but the desire to win is there.”
