Kompany relaxed over contract


Vincent Kompany is relaxed about his contract situation because he believes he will reach an agreement with Manchester City.

Kompany has been at the Etihad Stadium since 2008 but his contract is due to expire in the summer and he has yet to agree new terms with the reigning Premier League champions.

Despite having just over two months to run on his contract, the 33-year-old expects to be playing at Manchester City next season and is happy to focus on helping the team in their pursuit of silverware.

"I'll be playing next season. All the other speculation is not in place at the moment. I'm part of the family now, so we'll deal with this situation as a family," Kompany told talkSPORT.

"We might agree or disagree but it won't change any of the relationships between me and the club.

"But it's not a priority right now, one guarantee is that I will be playing and trying to win more trophies.

"I enjoy facing the challenges in the Premier League and Champions League and I enjoy playing against and with players of such quality as well.

"When you get to the twilight of your career you enjoy it twice as much, and that's what I'm doing.

"Behind the scenes I just keep grafting on and it allows me to be able to come into games and enjoy doing a job for the team. I'm really enjoying every minute."

Kompany has struggled with injury in recent years and has made just 19 appearances for City in all competitions this season.
