Vincent Kompany: The club is investing in all the right places


Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is delighted with the club's philosophy of working to create a better future.

The Citizens are often criticised for the money they spend but the 28-year-old is convinced it's all part of a healthy long-term strategy.

"This is a club that is investing in all the right places," Kompany told the Sunday Mirror.

"The manager [Manuel Pellegrini] has played a big role in that, also. He is always calm, he never panics, and that message gets through to the players.

"I know City built up a negative reputation in the minds of some people, but if all the investment that has taken place isn't a statement of stability and commitment then I don't know what is.

"Nothing is short term here. Everything is geared towards being successful now and in the future - and you can only do that if the club is stable.

"We are moving into a new training ground soon, which will be another big step.

"Our youth teams are getting better, and our impact on the local community here in Manchester is growing all the time.

"There are big things to come from this club, believe me.

"Am I happy to know that David Silva, Kolarov, Nasri, Dzeko and Aguero are going to be in my team? Of course.

"I would hate to play against these guys. I am sure the fans are delighted with what they have seen this summer.

"They have seen us strengthen the squad, but they have also seen that there is continuity here. There's a plan for the future."
