"It was worth scaring us just to ruin their day": Vincent Kompany reveals that destroying Liverpool's day made the celebrations for the title even sweeter for Manchester City
- Vincent Kompany ended his last season of Manchester City by winning a triple
- Kompany admits that the Premier League title has become even sweeter
- Liverpool title rivals have hoped until the last day of the football calendar
- City conceded to Brighton before returning to win, much to Kompany's delight
Vincent Kompany has admitted controversially that his final victory in the Premier League with Manchester City last season was so much sweeter because it broke the heart of Liverpool.
City and Liverpool engaged in an exciting battle during the 2018/19 camapign, in which City and Kompany eventually reached the top and won the division for a single point.
And now, after leaving City after the historic treble season, Kompany emphasized why winning the title in such circumstances was even more special.
Vincent Kompany claims that winning the championship was made sweeter by Liverpool's heartbreak
"I had a good friend who was in Liverpool for their game against the wolves that day," Kompany wrote in his next book, as reported Sun.
& # 39; After winning and celebrating, I called to ask how their crowd reacted when Brighton took the lead against us.
& # 39; He told me it was like a party in the underground and that some of their supporters were crying in the stands saying "We will do it"
Kompany was a rock in defense while City won the title until the last day of the season
Kompany's "Treble Triumph" will be released soon
"When I heard it, I realized it was worth scaring us just to ruin their day a little."
The rivalry is resumed again this season, with Liverpool leading the Premier League by six points after remaining unbeaten throughout the season.
It marks a dynamic shift for the two sides, who meet on Sunday at Anfield in an all-out battle.
While City emerged as a threat to Manchester United's neighbors several years ago, it is now Liverpool with whom they share the ring of heavyweights.
Kompany notes how this has changed for the players, who have been with City long enough to experience the passage in the landscape.
"It's fun, because I remember that in 2012, when we won the championship for the first time, I was getting a lot of messages from Liverpool fans telling me we had to beat United for the title," Kompany added.
& # 39; They didn't want Alex Ferguson to win another one because they didn't want them to reach 20 championship titles. During that season, the neutrals from all over England said they didn't want United to win another title.
"But over the years, we ended up in this surreal position where we had the whole of Manchester, including the Reds, and we wanted us to do well when Liverpool was our main rival."
