Kompany won't change playing style

Published Add your comment

Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany has vowed not to change his tackling style even though he was sent off when he last faced Manchester United.

Kompany was forced to serve a four-match ban after being harshly dismissed for a two-footed challenge on Nani. Sir Alex Ferguson was critical of Kompany's scissor tackle after the game and Kompany published a detailed response on Facebook, outlining his fears for the future of English football.

However, despite that bad experience, Kompany has no intention of curbing his natural instincts, and the Belgium international said: "You can't, and I don't think the fans would want it. I don't think it's possible to do it. I have not been the player I am now for two years - I have been that player since I started playing football 20 years ago."
