City have got team spirit - Kompany

Published Add your comment

Captain Vincent Kompany believes Manchester City have proved their champion team spirit remains intact.

City needed to come from behind against promoted Southampton to get their Barclays Premier League title defence off to a winning start in their season opener at the Etihad Stadium.

The 3-2 success may not have seen City at their most destructive but Kompany felt it was a performance full of the qualities which yielded a first league title in 44 years.

The 26-year-old told City TV: "I don't even need to say it loudly. Last season proved how crucial it [team spirit] was for us, in the last games.

"We showed we wanted it as much. It doesn't matter if we have our best game or our worst game, we just keep going."
