Kompany est Carles Puyol de Manchester City

Former England defender Joleon Lescott praised Vincent Kompany and called him Carles Puyol from Manchester City.

Kompany is a legend for City. He has been defending the club for around 11 years. Precisely from 2008 to 2019.

When playing at City, he has recorded 360 appearances in all competitions. He also contributed 20 goals and 11 assists.

Kompany also contributed to the presentation of 12 championship trophies while staying at the Etihad stadium. Four of them are the Premier League champions' trophies.

He currently has a career in the Belgian League with his former club, Anderlecht. He became a player and manager. But because his club has had poor results, he has resigned from his coaching position and is now only focusing on the game.

Praise to Kompany

As a tribute to his career while at City, the witness match will take place in the middle of this week. This duel will bring together a team of former team-mates against a star team in the Premier League, consisting mostly of former Manchester United players.

Before the match, Lescott praised the 33-year-old defender. "The way he manages his actions, he will miss all the teams in the world when he will not be there," Lescott told Goal.

"He is like Carles Puyol in Barcelona, ​​the great captain is leaving and you are having a hard time because of the impact of his departure," he exclaimed.

"He is one of the best players City has seen, he saw City before the current owner, Vinny almost saw his vision before the owner came in. He is an excellent goalkeeper for the club and he has great value. He gives blood, sweat, and tears to the City of Man, many of them are Vincent, David Silva, and Sergio Aguero. "

Follow Kompany's footsteps

Lescott, who is also a defender of the city, said there are currently a number of players who have a good chance to follow Kompany's footsteps. They can become legends on the Etihad stage.

"They have been here for so long and always playing Kevin De Bruyne is a great talent and if he continues to do it, he will be there," he said.

"Same for Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Aymeric Laporte and John Stones, the club gives you a foothold to become a legend," Lescott said.
