Did Kompany have a go at his team-mates?

Did Kompany have a go at his team-mates?

Man City’s captain Vincent Kompany's Instagram post last night could be read as a rebuke to his team-mates.

The Premier League champions suffered a humiliating 2-1 defeat to CSKA Moscow - a result that leaves their hopes of Champions League progression hanging by a thread.

It was a shambolic performance by City that included two red cards, diving and terrible individual performances.

Naturally as captain it’s up to Kompany to rally the troops, and he posted a picture from the game and the following message late last night.

‘When no one else believes, it’s my role to still believe.’

Hmmm, the captain saying “no-one else believes” doesn’t really give the impression of a team ready to fight.

Be careful Man City, if you don’t support him, Piers Morgan knows a team who will.
