Kompany wants City to clinch Premier League crown after 44 years

   May 1, 11:42 am

London, May 1(ANI): Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany wants his team to clinch the Premier League crown after a gap of 44 years.

"I am buzzing. We have been waiting for this moment. We know it's far from over, but we've given our fans two wins over United. We have to finish it off. I hope we can do it in the two games we have left. Everybody wants it so bad. Somebody texted me to say I was going to score. I thought he was a lunatic!" The Sun quoted Kompany, as saying.

His statement came after both City and United are level on the points table, but the former have a superior goal difference in the ongoing Premier League tournament.

United boss Alex Ferguson admitted that it gives the 'noisy neighbours' the upper hand.

"They are in the driving seat. It's not over yet. But they have an eight-goal advantage. That is a big advantage at this time of the season," he added.

City chief Mancini, whose side go to Newcastle on Sunday, said: "We deserved to win. We scored and played well. They did not have a scoring chance." (ANI)
