Vincent Kompany speaks of title obsession

Manchester City celebrate winning the Barclays Premier LeagueManchester City captain Vincent Kompany has admitted that he and his side are obsessed with retaining their Premier League title this term.

Roberto Mancini’s men won the top-flight crown on goal difference from cross-town rivals Manchester United last term, and have started the 2012-13 campaign with a 3-2 win over Southampton.

Kompany, who signed a new six-year contract extension earlier this summer, has stated that he is obsessed with lifting the title once more.

“You can walk around thinking you’re a winner, but if you don’t train like a winner or if you don’t do everything in your life to maintain being a winner, it just stops there,” Kompany told The Telegraph.

“Just after we won the league, I was thinking, ‘I don’t want this to have an influence on me’, because before I won the league I didn’t think I could win it.

“So I prepared twice as much as others, I’d like to believe, and did everything to win it. It was an obsession for us and myself, so I hope we just keep that obsession.

“Every day of my life, I’m still obsessed by this moment, by this victory at the end of the season. It’s what I want to have again,” he concluded.
