Man City skipper Kompany satisfied with victory over Villarreal

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany says they showed the necessary character to defeat Villarreal.

City's laboured performance was in contrast to their outstanding Barclays Premier League form but Kompany was in no doubt victory was justified.

The Belgian told Sky Sports: "It's totally deserved but unbelievable really.

"We're happy, maybe we're going to carry on doing these sort of things this season.

"I've said it before, I think we are in the toughest group... Villarreal have been in it [the competition] much more than us - so it makes it a beautiful night."
