Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has committed his long-term future to the English champions by signing a new six-year deal.
The 26-year-old Belgium defender was an integral part of the City side that last season won their first top-flight title since 1968.
“For me, if you are good somewhere then there is no reason to look elsewhere,” Kompany told City’s official website.
“Man City is not just a project of the owners or the people employed by the club — it is also my project.” Kompany, who joined in 2008, said he believed in the long-term vision of the club and it owners.
“I have been here since the beginning and I have seen everything at the club change inside and out,” he said.
“I have the feeling that I have contributed to it too. It is good to know that I can be at City for another six years. It is a compliment that the club feels so highly of me.
“Hopefully, in the future I will have a bigger impact than I already have. I am good here.”
