Kompany can't wait for United tie

Published Add your comment

Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany has revealed he can't wait to face Manchester United in next month's FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.

The Manchester-duo will face off for the third time this season after City overcame Npower Championship side Reading, and United beat title rivals Arsenal.

Wayne Rooney's spectacular overhead kick separated the two sides during their Old Trafford meeting, and Kompany can't wait for the next match-up between the two.


"I’ll let you guess how much it means and how much the next opponents mean to us," the defender told ESPN.

“We’re happy to play them. There is no easy way to get to the final. We’re looking forward to it and there will be no complaints from us."

A goalless draw was the outcome between the clubs at Eastlands in November, but last season United scored stoppage time winners in both league encounters and in the second-leg of the Carling Cup semi-final, which leaves Roberto Mancini still without a league win over Sir Alex Ferguson.
