KOMPANY MEANS BUSINESS
THEY may have struck up a rapport but Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany says friendships will be forgotten when he faces sister club Melbourne City on the Gold Coast tomorrow.
The clash is a forerunner to City’s International Champions Cup opener against Roma at the MCG on Tuesday, but crucial for a team hungry to reclaim the Premier League title.
Kompany said the partnership with Melbourne City had been a success, but would be put on hold.
“Now we play them but we don’t want to lose out to them,” Kompany said.
“We were in Abu Dhabi together. We met all the guys there, they were cool and they’ve got a great set-up there. It’s coming together more and more for them.
“Melbourne feels the association with us and we feel it with them. It’s something new but it’s something that’s working for us.
“It’s a good time to play, there’s just under a month to go until the season so anything that isn’t quite working, you’ve got time to put it right.”
