‘The football industry in general is not one that can afford to point the finger ‘: Vincent Kompany speaks out on Manchester City charges

Vincent Kompany has spoken out on Manchester City’s recent charges brought against them by the Premier League.

On Monday the Premier League made the announcement regarding an unprecedented array of charges brought towards Manchester City, relating to a period between 2009 and 2018, with potential punishments if the club is found guilty ranging from fines to relegation.

Kompany won four Premier League titles, two FA Cups and four League Cups during an 11-year spell at the Etihad Stadium.

One of the suggested punishments floated around social media since the charges emerged was to strip City of the titles won in this period.

This would see Kompany lose the majority of the silverware he won in Manchester.

But when asked if anything could tarnish his memories of what he and his former team-mates achieved at City, the Burnley boss said: “I kind of look at it and sometimes roll my eyes a little bit.

“No doubt there’s a lot of righteousness in the world to come and tell you what you’ve done wrong, and then if everybody looks at themselves, I think the football industry in general is not one that can afford to point the finger too many times.

“Do the best for yourself and let’s try and improve all the time but I’m a little bit sceptical when the fingers get pointed easily.”
