Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is confident changes made this summer will help them handle a long Champions League run.

Kompany says his team is well prepared for all of the challenges ahead in a season which kicks off for City in just five days.

"It has been a problem for English teams, and ourselves definitely, coping with the Champions League, the Premier League and all of the other competitions," the 27-year old told City's website.

"We have changed our approach a little bit, so we will see at the end of the season."
