Vincent Kompany: Wants a return to holding trophies aloft as City skipper

City are beginning a new era under manager Manuel Pellegrini following the sacking of Roberto Mancini in May.

Pellegrini has now met most of his squad for the start of a pre-season programme which includes trips to South Africa, Hong Kong, Germany and Finland.

City lost their Premier League title to arch-rivals United but Kompany told his club's website: "We're at a big club, so the only goal we can have is to win trophies.

"There's about six or seven clubs in England alone in this situation, so it will be very competitive.

"Our objective this year is to win things and to play well together. We all know that we have to be very strong as a team and bond with each other.

"It's an important year for everyone; we have a lot to put right after last season and internationally it's a World Cup year, so there are so many reasons to perform well.

"We've got the squad to do that, but a lot of hard work needs to be done first. I think all of us have done some preparation work during the holidays because the guys look very sharp after a long break, so that's great.

"It was also nice to start work with the new manager and I think his approach with the team today was really good.

"It's important now to try and improve on the last campaign and make sure that whatever the new manager brings in, that we try and make it our own as quick as possible."

City were also surprisingly beaten by Wigan 1-0 in the FA Cup final, which precipitated Mancini's departure, and while Fernandinho and Jesus Navas have arrived at the Etihad Stadium, Carlos Tevez has left for Juventus.

Kompany added: "We're at a big club, so the only goal we can have is to win trophies.

"There's about six or seven clubs in England alone in this situation, so it will be very competitive. Our objective this year is to win things and to play well together. We all know that we have to be very strong as a team and bond with each other."

f I were Manuel Pellegrini I would keep quiet and hope the Board didn't notice City not winning anything. If he isn't sacked I'd be astonished.
