Vincent Kompany made his triumphant return to Manchester City from a lengthy injury spell this past week in a win against Sunderland only to leave the match after just a few minutes due to an aggravated injury that will leave him out of action for the foreseeable future. Now on the sidelines, Kompany has declared his intentions to return to the team as good as or better than he was before.
On his Facebook account, Kompany wrote a lengthy message to his followers and restated his intention to be the best defender in the world.
‘Today was a bad day for me,’ Kompany wrote. ‘Injuries have and still are preventing me to play my role the way I’d want to but it’s not stopping me to progress,’ he added.
Before his brief appearance on Saturday Kompany had missed the last eight Manchester City fixtures with the calf problem but remained undeterred in his pursuit for full fitness: ‘It’s a challenge that I will overcome.’
‘I will get on with it and when I do come back.. I will be stronger again.’
‘I want to be the best defender in the world and I want Manchester City FC and Belgium to become the best club and country in world football.
‘I won’t give up that dream.’
Prior to the match against Sunderland, Kompany had missed the previous eight fixtures for the Citizens, a stretch in which the club lost three times – including a crucial bout with Arsenal – and fell from first place to third place on the table.
Kompany is also the starting defender for Belgium, and with him at the centre-back position the team rose to the No. 1 ranking in the world.
