Even though Manchester City may already find themselves in 4th place, it would be fair to say that they have been far from convincing in their opening three games. However, captain Vincent Kompany says the best is yet to come, with the defender saying that he is relatively happy with the team even if they are not quite firing on all cylinders.
Even though City have only dropped two points through their opening three fixtures, it would be fair to say that the club have hardly been convincing. In fact, some would say that they have been fortuitous to reach the seven point mark, having ridden their luck in their games against Southampton and Liverpool.
However, captain Kompany says there is no need to worry. Speaking to the press ahead of the international break, the player said, “What’s missing? Two points out of nine, that’s all. I’m leaving for the internationals now and if I had to leave one message for the team it would be, ‘Well done guys, we’ve battled hard, we’ve shown how strong we are ’. If we are able to get results playing what people say might not be our best, then what will happen when we do? The best is yet to come.”
Of course, most supporters are not too concerned about the start. There can be no getting away from the fact that Roberto Mancini has been a hugely frustrated figure in the transfer market this term and after only managing to recruit his summer targets several days ago, the City squad is still waiting to feel the effects of these incoming players. The likes of Javi Garcia and Scott Sinclair will undoubtedly provide a boost to the team’s attacking play, while the return of Gareth Barry and Sergio Aguero from injury will also prove handy after the international break.
