Man City captain Kompany: Guardiola best in the world

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has declared manager Pep Guardiola the best in the game.

The Belgian has revealed his admiration for Guardiola.

"We have the best manager, no doubt," he said. "I think he's a one-off, one of a kind. Maybe in world football. I haven't been inside every dressing room to judge the other abilities but he's as strong as I can imagine a manager to be.

“In terms of team and talent, it's equal. We have had incredibly talented teams. The first time around when we won the title, just to name a few.

“The front line. Tevez, Balotelli, Dzeko, Aguero. You'd do well with them today. In terms of talent we've always had very talented teams.

“But what we have now is also personalities that suit the manager's ambition in terms of you've got talented players who are studying the tactics that we need to apply for every game and prepare and do the extra preparation.

"That's what makes the difference today."
