Kompany: 'Manchester City quadruple a matter of time'

17 January 2014 09:39

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany believes it is only a matter of time before the Manchester club secure a record haul of four trophies in a season.

Chiliean boss Manuel Pellegrini also shares a similar view, fully intent on winning all four competitions they are in.

And, Kompany, 27, says it is inevitable that City will one day complete a record haul of four triumphs in a season in the near future.

"We can't promise it will happen now, but eventually it will have to happen," said the Belgium defender.

"We are the players at the moment who have been chosen to do it. If it's not us then it will be other players.

"This club definitely has a target to win every competition possible."

Pellegrini's side are currently second in the Barclays Premier League, lead West Ham 6-0 in the Capital One Cup semi-final tie, face Watford in the fourth round of the FA Cup and await a two-legged Champions League tie with Barcelona in February.

The blue half of Manchester progressed to the fourth round of the FA Cup on Wednesday night, producing a clinical, scintillating display that we have become accustomed to as Championship opponents Blackburn were ruthlessly dispatched in the third round replay.

City also registered their ninety-ninth goal of the campaign so far during the rout, coming agonizingly close to the milestone goal. However, there is hardly any doubt in and around Manchester that the historic milestone is just around the corner for the Premier League title-favourites, with the visit of a troubled Cardiff City side on Saturday looming at the Etihad, where City have frequently brutally thrashed teams, consequently making four goals the average in the spectacular arena.

Kompany also credits Pellegrini, who replaced Roberto Mancini as manager last summer, with the greater attacking intent shown by City this term.

City have scored 99 goals this season from 33 matches and average four goals a game at home, with 64 from 16 fixtures.

"He's very offensive-minded and I think that's shown in our results and the way we play," Kompany said.

"I think we have been one of the best teams to watch in the Premier League so far."
