Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has spoken highly of the club’s former captain, Vincent Kompany.
Manchester City faces Kompany’s Burnley in the FA Cup quarter-final on Saturday and the former Belgium international would try to stop City’s route to Wembley.
Kompany, who captained Manchester City under Pep Guardiola, has also led Burnley within touching distance of promotion to the Premier League.
“Everyone knows he was important,” said Guardiola when asked about City’s former skipper. “He’s one of the biggest legends I had and personally I pity that sometimes he was injured.
“The important thing is how he helped me as a manager, he always helped the team and said the things he thought was best for the club. He was an exceptional captain, a top human being and I’m really pleased for him.”
