‘We will miss you captain’ How Man City skipper bid farewell in ‘great fashion’ after serving 11 Years

Injuries have taken their toll on Kompany in recent years, and he featured in only 17 of City’s 38 league games this season because of muscle injuries.

However, he will be remembered for his influence and contribution on the pitch, where he led City to a first top-flight title since 1968 in 2012.

Along with Sergio Aguero and David Silva, Kompany is one of only three survivors from that triumph, and they repeated the achievement in 2014 and 2018.

City retained their title this month, finishing one point ahead of Liverpool after one of the most thrilling seasons in Premier League history.

“How often does someone get the chance to end such an important chapter, representing a club with such great history and tradition, in such a great fashion?” Kompany said.

‘We will miss you captain’

Manchester City Foward Sergio Aguero:

We shared 8 years growing in this club. It was my pleasure to share this time together. All the best in this new stage

Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne:

Playing for about 10 years with this man for club and country. And what a privilege it’s been. Big player, big personality and big leader. Learned a lot from you. Wishing you all the best for the future.

City midfielder Phil Foden:

Looked after me from day one. Led by example, showed everyone what it means to be a leader, wear their heart on the sleeve, and give everything for this club. We will miss you captain.

City defender Kyle Walker:

 From skip to gaffer, the man has it all!! Since I walked through the door Vinny has been amazing to me. He helped me settle in and I’ve learned a lot from the big man. Good luck with everything skip, you’ll be missed

City centre-back Aymeric Laporte:

Thank you for this years close to you. Thank you for all the moments, all the words to me and to be the best leader which need this big family. You are a legend and we wish you the best in your next stage.

Kompany also paid tribute to his team-mates and manager Pep Guardiola.

“It’s cliche to say it but it’s also so true: without my team-mates, I would have never been here today,” he said.

“We fought many battles together. Side by side. In good times and in bad. So to all of you, from the 2008-2009 squad to today’s domestic treble winners: I owe you guys!

“A special word also to Pep and the backroom staff: you’ve been superb. You’ve followed me through so much hardship. You made me come back stronger every time. Thank you so much.”
