Kompany earns Hughes praise

25 Aug 2008 - 09:25:26

Manchester City new boy Vincent Kompany earned high praise from manager Mark Hughes for his debut performance in the 3-0 victory over West Ham United.

The 22-year-old Belgium international centre-back played as a defensive midfielder against the Hammers and showed up well as City roared to a comfortable victory.

Hughes said: "I knew he was a good player and you saw that as well.

"You always hope that when you introduce someone who hasn't plied their trade in the Premier League they will make an instant impact.

"Vincent has presence, an understanding of the game and he recognises danger when those situations occur. He nips these things in the bud.

"He has the flexibility I like in players and the ability to play in a number of positions. His performance was key to our victory."
