Vincent Kompany makes surprising comment about Adnan Januzaj

Manchester City player Vincent Kompany has been speaking about Manchester United's Adnan Januzaj.

Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany has made a surprising comment regarding Manchester United’s Adnan Januzaj.

In an interview with FourFourTwo, the Belgian centre-back was asked who the players were who stood out in the Belgium dressing room and made the atmosphere, and his response was surprising.

“There’s a few,” Kompany said. “With Belgium you have Romelu Lukaku and Adnan Januzaj, for instance. You always have a couple of players with strong personalities, who always have something to say.”

The surprise comes because up until April Januzaj had never even played for Belgium, and yet the youngster already appears to have become a big influence in the dressing room – despite his tender years.

You would expect teenagers who have only recently arrived in a senior international side to keep their own counsel, but it appears that Januzaj has already made his mark and one wonders if the same can be said of United’s dressing room, too.

He may not have had as much impact on the pitch this season, but it seems the United youngster is just as confident off the pitch, and that can only bode well for the years ahead.
