Man City 1-0 Leicester: Pep Guardiola hoped Vincent Kompany would not shoot

Man City 1-0 Leicester: Kompany is an incredible player - Guardiola

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admitted he was urging Vincent Kompany not to shoot as he lined up his brilliant winner against Leicester.

The City captain's long-range strike gave his side a 1-0 win, meaning they will retain their Premier League title if they beat Brighton on Sunday.

Belgian defender Kompany's goal was his first from outside the penalty area for City after 11 years with the club.

"I said, 'No shoot Vinnie, no shoot!'" said Guardiola.

And Kompany revealed the City boss had not been the only person doubting him before he let fly.

"I could hear people saying 'don't shoot, don't shoot!' But I've not come this far in my career to have young players tell me when to shoot," said Kompany.
