Man City captain Kompany to leave this summer

Man City captain Kompany to leave this summer

Guardiola's Manchester City side thrashed Watford 6-0 in the FA Cup final to become the first men's team to win England's three major honours in a single season.

Pep Guardiola " s "Fourmidables" and Nick Cushing's double cup winners were in high spirits as they journeyed through the city centre from Manchester Town Hall to Manchester Cathedral, when Kevin De Bruyne and John Stones led the crowd in a rendition of "Here's to you Vincent Kompany'.

City's strength in depth was in evidence as Guardiola could afford the luxury of leaving Sergio Aguero on the bench for Jesus, as a reward for the Brazilian who started every FA Cup game this season, and introduce De Bruyne 10 minutes into the second half.

During that time he won four Premier League titles, two FA Cups, four League Cups and two Community Shields. "It's a massive dream come true".

"It just shows what the manager's building here", Sterling said.

Kiko Femenia is likely to get the nod ahead of Daryl Janmaat in the right-back role despite a disastrous performance against West Ham United last weekend.

"I love the Champions League, but to [win the domestic treble] is more hard than to win the Champions League", Guardiola said afterwards.

"There have been many important contributors to Manchester City's renaissance, but arguably none are more important than Vincent Kompany", he added.

It always looked a long shot for them to deliver a classic Cup upset.

Chance! Roberto Pereyra spurns a golden opportunity to give Watford the lead on a rare breakaway!

Mahrez nearly made it three when he skipped away from Holebas and thumped an angled shot, but Watford rallied and Kiko Femenia won a corner that sparked momentary chaos before City cleared. As the Sky Blues flooded men forward, Watford broke with drive.

Kompany has been blighted with injury problems in recent years but started five of City's last six Premier League matches to help them win the title, including scoring a stunning victor against Leicester in the penultimate game.

I shared my thoughts and listened to their vision for the future: ambitious, courageous and determined to get back to number one. De Bruyne's return would mean Bernardo Silva starts in the attacking unit once again, with Riyad Mahrez missing out.

Bernardo Silva's curling cross picked out Jesus at the back post and the Brazilian's effort was heading in before Sterling snatched his 24th goal of the season by smashing the ball over the line. Silva is 33 and Fernandinho 34, with both seeing their playing time wane this season and likely to fall further again next time around.

Also celebrating on Saturday were Wolverhampton Wanderers, who will now qualify for the Europa league via their seventh-place finish in the Premier League.
