Kompany realising his dream as Man City captain

Vincent Kompany admits it is a dream to be the skipper of a Premier League-winning side.

The Belgian defender has captained Manchester City to a second league title in three seasons and spoke of the thrill that comes with being so heavily involved in such a successful team.

Kompany joined City from Hamburg in 2008 and has now helped the club win two league trophies as well as an FA Cup and a League Cup which have made him feel like he is living a childhood dream.

"Forget about the money, forget about everything. As a kid, you grow up as a six-year-old, and all you dream of is playing games, winning games and lifting trophies," he told Sky Sports.

"That's all I've dreamed of, not the rest, I've dreamed of lifting trophies and I feel like I am achieving that dream when I am doing this.

"We're building a club, not just a team. That's why I'm excited to be here, that's why every single year I have a feeling we need to be better, and next year we need to be even better.

"If we want to be a big club, this should be one of so many. It will take a lot of work, but people are ready for it."

City defeated West Ham United 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday to finish on 86 points, two points of second-placed Liverpool, allowing them to add the 2014 premiership to the 2012 triumph.
