    Vincent Kompany wants to be connected with Manchester City for rest of life


    Vincent Kompany says he wants to be "connected" with Manchester City for the rest of his life.

    On Wednesday, the Belgium defender celebrated 10 years since joining the Citizens from Hamburg for a reported £7.6m fee.

    Kompany's current contract expires at the end of the season but, despite being hindered by injuries at times in recent years, he insists he is still getting better as a player.

    "I think what people have never really understood with me is that aside from having had some injuries I'm actually really lucky to be a really good athlete naturally so I still feel mobile, I still feel strong, that I'm improving and I'm learning so much more about the game," the 32-year-old said in an interview with the City website.

    "I'm not stressed or nervous about any possible scenario because I've prepared for every eventuality. I'm enjoying the game more than than I've probably ever enjoyed the game. Probably my first year at City and this last year now have been the best in my career so you want to make it last as long as you can, for sure.

    "I feel like I can still give something back. We'll see what level and to what extent but in many ways I've received too much from the game to put it behind me and go on a 45 year holiday, it's not for me.

    "I'll be connected with City for the rest of my life, as a fan, as an employee, as an ambassador. Whatever City decide or I decide, it's not something we can undo. We've had 10 years together and 10 years at City with the transitions we've had is like 30 years at another club, trust me. So it's cemented, we're tied to each other for life."
