‘There’s a lot of righteousness in the world’: Vincent Kompany hits out at Manchester City critics after Premier League charges as he says he is ‘sceptical of those pointing the finger’
- Manchester City have been charged with 115 breaches of financial rules
- Vincent Kompany was captain of the club for the majority of the period
- People are calling for City to be punished severely for their breaches
- Kompany thinks those pointing the finger are a little hypocritical
English football was left in shock this week after the champions were charged with 115 breaches of the competition’s financial rules following a four-year investigation.
If City are found guilty they could face any number of punishments, ranging from a fine and points deduction to expulsion from the league.
There have been suggestions that should have their previous titles taken from them and Kompany doesn’t see much sincerity in those making these sort of claims.
‘No doubt there’s a lot of righteousness in the world to come and tell you what you’ve done wrong, and then if everybody looks at themselves, I think the football industry in general is not one that can afford to point the finger too many times,’ the Burnley manager said.
Vincent Kompany says he is “very sceptical” of people “pointing fingers” at Manchester City
‘I think all of you will have a little bit of a smile on your face to know what the football industry is about. I’m very sceptical when people start pointing fingers.
‘Do the best for yourself and let’s try and improve all the time but I’m a little bit sceptical when the fingers get pointed easily.’
City said in a statement: ‘The club welcomes the review of this matter by an independent commission, to impartially consider the comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence that exists in support of its position.
‘As such we look forward to this matter being put to rest once and for all.’
Kompany was captain of the club for a large amount of the period that was investigated
