Man City legend Kompany: Always worth spoiling Liverpool fans' title dream

Manchester City legend Vincent Kompany admits pipping Liverpool to the Premier League title last season was just perfect.

On winning the League on the final day, Kompany admitted he loved hearing about how things had suddenly gone sour at Anfield and that tears were flowing — rather than champagne.

The Anderlecht player-manager told The Sun: “I had a good friend who was at Liverpool for their game against Wolves that day.

“After we had won and we'd celebrated, I rang him to ask how their crowd had reacted when Brighton took the lead against us.

"He told me it was like a party inside the ground and that some of their supporters were crying in the stands saying, 'We're going to do it'.

“When I heard that, I realised it was worth us having a scare just to spoil their day that little bit."
