Vincent Kompany comments on Manchester City future with contract expiring in 2019

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is out of contract in the summer but is not stressing over his future at the club he has spent a decade of his career at.

The 32-year-old, who missed training with Belgium yesterday ahead of their friendly with the Netherlands, will become a free agent in June unless he signs a new deal at the Etihad Stadium.

Speaking to the Daily Mail however, Kompany seemed relaxed about the situation, speaking of his comfortable position at the club.

“First of all, the situation with City is very simple. I am in a club where I feel so comfortable,” Kompany said.

“I have an extremely good relationship with every single member of the club so there is absolutely no need for me to constantly go on about a contract situation. I am in a comfortable situation with good people and we will make the decision when it needs to happen.

“The good thing is I feel comfortable on the pitch too. It’s a trade-off as I get older. On the one hand, everything becomes easier because of experience.

“My mind thinks faster and my age and experience means I can anticipate so many things before they are happening.

“But also, with age, I have come to learn that I do not want or need to chase every single ball down like I might have done five or six years ago. It is a trade-off but it allows me to be a centre-back in a great team.”

Pep Guardiola recently said that he hoped Kompany will stay at the Premier League champions beyond this season and there appears to be no rush on either side to finalise a new contract because of a mutual trust developed over the last 10 years.
