Man City captain Vincent Kompany: ‘My last ditch tackle on Borini gave me Barcelona flashbacks!’
The Capital One Cup final scoreline may give the impression that it was a walk in the park for Man City, but it was anything but.
The Citizens were 1-0 down, and could easily have gone down 2-0 were it not for a brilliant last-ditch tackle from City captain Vincent Kompany.
Sunderland’s Borini broke through on goal, and at that moment, Kompany told the post-match reporter that the Barcelona game came flashing through his mind; namely, the Demichelis tackle on Messi.
It’s a pretty interesting revelation from Kompany, to consider that even in the white heat of the moment, such a clear and lucid memory could come to mind.
