Belgian international was encouraged by the performance from his team-mates.
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany feels the club can take plenty of positives away from the Audi Cup final defeat to Bayern Munich.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men were beaten 2-1 by the European Champions on Thursday at the Allianz Arena after they staged a second half comeback with a Thomas Muller penalty and Mario Mandzukic’s header cancelling out Alvaro Negeredo’s first goal his new club.
Despite the loss, Kompany insists City can be pleased with how they performed against Pep Guardiola’s side and is already seeing improvement under Pellegrini.
“It was a friendly game but I think we put in a good performance,” he told Manchester Evening News. ” In the beginning we were probably not having as much possession as we would have liked but saying that, I think tactically we did brilliantly.
“In the second half we had a lot better chances and in my opinion, I think we deserved better. We had a lot of chances and maybe a few weeks into the season those balls are going to go in. More importantly, I think we defended really well and didn’t give them a lot of chances.
“It’s a friendly game and we had such a positive attitude and going forward we looked sharp and dangerous. I guess the time for talking is almost over.”
