Manchester City latest: Kompany on Hart; good news for Negredo

All the latest news, views and transfer rumours from the Etihad…

Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany has been speaking about the difference between the Blues’ dressing room and the Belgium one in an interview with FourFourTwo.

The centre-back said, “There’s a big difference. For instance at City, some players like to have music in the dressing room. With Belgium, we can’t have music. But as an individual, I try to approach both in the same way.”

Kompany also revealed the biggest joker in the City dressing room.

“You always have a couple of players with strong personalities, who always have something to say,” he said. “At City, we have Joe Hart and a couple more. It’s important to have those people in the group.”

In other news, Inside Spanish Football reports that Alvaro Negredo could finally make his debut for Valencia this weekend, after moving to the La Liga club from City on loan in the summer.

The report claims the Spaniard has been given the green light to play but may be held back for a further seven days to ensure he is back to his best.
