The skipper of Manchester City, Vincent Kompany, has hailed Cristiano Ronaldo for his last minute goal against City in the Champions League match which was played on Tuesday. That goal took Madrid to a dramatic victory over City at Santiago Bernabeu.
Kompany was pretty close to Ronaldo when the great Portuguese smashed that goal. Many experts think that Kompany could have made a clearance, but, the City skipper doesn’t think so. As per Kompany, he had absolutely no chance of clearing that shot. That was wonderfully hit. No player other than Ronaldo could have scored a goal from that position. But, Ronaldo is just superb. He converts even half chances into goals and that’s a rare quality. His technique is a bit different from the others and his concentration level is fantastic.
The City captain backed the goalkeeper Hart who is also being criticized for that 90th minute goal. As per Kompany, it is not fair to criticize the goal keeper. Any goalkeeper in the world would have struggled to stop that shot. Ronaldo had absolutely nailed that.
According to Kompany, although the City team lost the match, but, there were some positives to take out from the match. The team managed to get ahead twice in the match. Benzema scored a goal after quite a while and Marcelo also looked good in the match.
On being asked about the fitness of Samir Nasri, who left the ground in the first half due to hamstring injury, Kompany said that the injury didn’t look that severe, but, he needs to rest for a few days to get rid of that strain. Probably, he would miss a match or two. Manchester City will take on the Gunners in its next match on Sunday at Etihad Stadium.
