Vincent Kompany reacts to Pep Guardiola's prediction about becoming Man City manager one day

Vincent Kompany has responded after Pep Guardiola predicted that he will become the manager of Manchester City one day.

The 36-year-old has been touted to take over the Sky Blues job ever since he took over the Burnley job. With the Belgian doing a magnificent job at Turf Moor while playing an exciting brand of football, many believe he would be the perfect fit for the role.

Vincent Kompany, who is considered as one of the biggest icons at Manchester City has now responded to the claim spouted by Pep Guardiola that he could return to his former club as a manager in the future.

Considering the Clarets are flying this season, sitting at the top of the Championship table, it seems like could well return to the Etihad Stadium in the future.

However, Vincent Kompany has confirmed that he has no plans to potentially even succeed Pep Guardiola as Manchester City manager, while lauding the Catalan legend.

“[Manchester] City have the best manager in the world and I hope he [Pep Guardiola] stays for another 10 years. If not, they should have the best manager in the world after Pep… I’m way down the ranking so there isn’t even a second in my thoughts”, he told BBC Sport.

Vincent Kompany should stay patient

It is nice to see that Vincent Kompany is not rushing into things despite making all the right headlines at Burnley, especially taking into account how much of a huge leap it would be for him to take over at Manchester City, especially as the manager after the Spaniard.

While it is incredible to see how well he has adapted to managing the current league leaders, gaining the experience of coaching in the Premier League amongst other factors should be his prime focus.

However, it would make for a sight to behold to see Kompany take over the helm one day.
