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.
