Kompany described the current season as a â€˜rollercoasterâ€™ on the eve of the FA Cup semifinal against Chelsea, but was eager to remind fans who are unhappy with the defending championsâ€™ Premier League form, despite Mondayâ€™s 2-1 win at United, how far City have evolved.
Belgium star Kompany said: "Weâ€™ve made a massive progression, not just on the field but off the field as well. The club work and function like a big club, and that couldnâ€™t be said two years ago.
"People forget this is a turnaround that has happened over four or five years. Itâ€™s incredible and in that sense I believe we have overachieved.
"But now that weâ€™ve set the standard we cannot go under it again."
