Pep Has to Rebuild Manchester City’s Defense without a Skipper
With Manchester City’s Ladbrokes football odds of winning the title being 7/4, Ladbrokes Football pundits believe that his to do list once he arrives at the Etihad stadium will be a lengthy one. To most of the football pundits, it will not be a surprise if we used the words “defense” and “rebuild” were put side by side near the top of the list.
Usually, a change in the back-line players in the City team would have been centered around Kompany, the clubs main man, rock and captain.
However, with the recent injury that the Belgian player obtained in the recent Champions league semi-final clash with the now finalists, Real Madrid, there is a speculation that this could have been his final match for the club.
At the start of the season, such a thought could be unthinkable with the 30-year-old ßmarshaling the players to win the titles.
It is no doubt that Manchester City are a stronger and better side when their captain, Vincent Kompany plays the matches, but it is now evident that he cannot be relied upon. In the 2015/2016 season, Kompany has only been able to feature in just 21 matches out of the possible 57 matches.
In his career as a City player, Vincent Kompany has suffered 33 injuries. These stats are a clear indication that Pep Guardiola cannot rest his faith in him.
He will be forced to dip into the transfer market and shop for a new center back or least roll the dice and hope against hope that Vincent Kompany hold up until the end of 2016/2017 Barclays Premier League.

During the Real Madrid vs Manchester City match, Los Blanco’s midfield consisting of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Isco could have had an impressive performance but it was Gareth Bale who outshone them by his seemingly-unmanageable forward runs.
The ex-Tottenham Hotspurs winger was responsible for robbing of Manchester City their much awaited final. Moreover, Gareth bale has been a significant part of Zinedine Zidane’s team having scored or assisted in his past few matches that he has played.
Being just two years the junior of Leo, Gareth Bale is hoping to bag his first ever ‘Ballon d’Or award in the year 2017. He also looks forward to steering his Wales country, together with fellow countryman, Aron Ramsey to higher heights in the Euro 2016.
