Pep reveals what he told Kompany before City exit

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has expressed how he tried to hold on to Vincent Kompany after last season.

“I tried to convince Vincent a lot to stay one more year with us,” he said ahead of Friday’s trip to Wolves.

“When he decided in the last few weeks [of last season], I said, ‘No, no, no – you are not going to leave me. No, no, no’. But he leaves me.

“When those guys take a decision it is already taken.”

With Kompany now gone, Pep might also be set to lose his second most experienced campaigner in Sergio Aguero soon. However, Pep clearly expressed how much he depends on the player.

I think Sergio is irreplaceable,” Guardiola said. “We have an incredible striker in Gabriel [Jesus] and maybe another one will come when Sergio is leaving. But he is irreplaceable.

“The most important moment of this club, more important than hopefully one day when this club wins the Champions League, is when Sergio scores that goal against Queens Park Rangers to win the first Premier League after I don’t know how many years.

“That moment is much better than four titles in one season or whatever. And he was the guy.”
