Vincent Has Good Kompany In Hughes

Vincent Has Good Kompany In Hughes

Vincent Kompany joined the club this summer. The 22-year old, has produced some solid if not superb performances for the Blues, but his position means he`s not always credited with the compliments.

However Mark Hughes has told the Clubs official website:

'People may forget how young he is in years and experience, but he has played a good deal at the top level throughout Europe, and he has a few big games under his belt,'

'Playing in The Premier League will help him develop as a player. He has had a real impact since he arrived here. He's quite intense at times, but very focused and a good professional.

'He wants to be better than he is now, and he is enjoying playing in The Premier League,"

'When he makes a mistake he can get very down on himself, but I think that's a good trait to have. That shows the type of person and the type of player that he is.


Mark Hughes continues: 'And he was very strong and resolute when he needed to be and is always looking to free people up in the forward areas.'

'He plays very well at centre-back, we watched the game against Spain in the last international break and he was outstanding there.

'Vincent himself enjoys midfield, though, and that's where he is for us because it is a position where we are a bit light. That's where he will stay for the foreseeable future.'

Vincent has become as important as Shaun Wright-Phillips and Robinho. We should not forget that he is only 22. Kompany is a player who will improve in time, and even though rumours have it Hughes is looking to add another DM to the fold, I`m sure Kompany will stay in and around the first team for years to come. In my opinion except for Shaun, Vincent is the best buy of the summer transfer window.

Is Kompany one of the best Defensive Midfielders around, or can Mark Hughes buy better in January?

Out of all your players other than Robinho, who I have had a soft spot for even when he was at Santos, Kompany is the player from City that I am most jealous of. Easily. He has great athleticism for a boy of his stature, and he reads the game brilliantly. Arsenal could really do with someone like him now. He will be absolute quality.

Spot on Arsenal Rob. Off topic, but I have been pleasantly surprised by the dignified way the Gooners coming on here have been speaking to us post defeat. A credit to The Arsenal and no mistake.

I think it's because we're not too used to losing to sides who play good football. Makes a nice change (if loosing 3-0 could ever be described as 'nice').

Arsenal are a great footballing side. They have a truly great manager and play some of the most wonderful football. Their fans enjoy the best football. No problem there then. Let's just get Manure out of the Top 4 and get back to the beauitiful game.

Buzz Lightyear, couldnt describe him any better. Kompany will become our Patrick Viera, but i feel he slides in to tackles to much. If you watch him in a game, he will commit atleast 5 fouls. With time, comes performance though, and im sure he will be world-class.

He will get better with the likes or Robbi and SWP and Ireland to play with. I forgot how young he is and how well he has taken to the Premiership. A future City Captain?
