Kompany is looking forward to the clash between the two sides at the weekend.
It’s a big match in the Premier League this weekend as Manchester City host rivals Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
The two clubs are the last two winners of the English top flight and with new managers in charge of both sides, it’s set to be an interesting clash.
Both City and United are also tied on seven points after two victories, a draw and a loss apiece and Citizens captain Vincent Kompany thinks it’s a special fixture.
“Until now the derby was not a priority at all but obviously now it is the next game,” the 27-year-old was quoted by ITV.
“It is a special game. It is becoming one of the most sought-after fixtures in the world and it is always great to be involved in such games. I never take them for granted.”
Last season the two sides beat each other at their own grounds; although City’s triumph at Old Trafford was slightly tainted by the fact their rivals had already won the title.
However, the season before saw the Sky Blues inflict the heaviest defeat Sir Alex Ferguson had ever suffered at the Theatre of Dreams with a 1-6 mauling.
Ferguson has of course retired from the Scot’s position at the Red Devils and the mastermind behind that victory, Roberto Mancini, has been sacked.
This term it will see Manuel Pellegrini and David Moyes going head-to-head for the first time and if one were to emerge victorious it would provide a significant psychological edge in the title race.
