Belgium defender says fans must not panic though, despite shock Cup final loss.
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has intriguingly claimed that there are a whole host of different reasons as to why the mega-rich club surprisingly lost Saturday’s FA Cup final 1-0 to Wigan Athletic at Wembley Stadium, reports the Daily Mirror.
City went into the show-piece event against Roberto Martinez’s struggling Premier League outfit as huge favourites to win the competition for the second time in the space of just three years after they won the Cup in 2011.
However, the Latics ended up deservedly causing the biggest Cup final upset since Wimbledon overcame Liverpool 1-0 in 1988 thanks to substitute Ben Watson’s injury-time header.
And after the full-time whistle, the Belgium international mysteriously tweeted:“Congratulations Wigan with their FA Cup victory. There are many reasons why they deserved the win more than we did.
“To our fans. I said it two years ago and we’ve proven. I’ll say it again. City is destined for greatness, so let’s just keep calm.”
It is not known exactly what the “many reasons” the centre back is referring to are, but it has only served to add more confusion to the future of the club’s under-pressure head coach Roberto Mancini, who is expected to be sacked as the City coach at some point this week after four years in charge at Eastlands.
