Vincent Kompany reveals the moment when Liverpool became their number one rivals

Manchester City are preparing to play an away Premier League game against Liverpool today, November 10. Ahead of the game, former City captain Vincent Kompany has revealed that the attack on Manchester City team bus by Liverpool fans, last year, turned the Reds into their biggest rivals. In his new book ‘Treble Triumph’, being serialised in The Sun, Kompany wrote: "I was on the coach as it was bricked. That moment things changed. The rivalry increased and they became our No 1 team to beat. The mood among City fans towards these games against Liverpool had changed. "They'd always been seen as tough fixtures but now there was more tension. None of us were sitting on that coach saying they were scared. But it was very unpleasant and should never have been allowed to happen. "I do think that incident changed the way that a lot of neutrals looked at Liverpool. Other things contributed — penalties not given, offsides that should or shouldn’t have been awarded." The incident happened ahead of the Champions League quarter-final first-leg game in 2017/18 season. The game ended with Liverpool's 5-1 win on aggregate. source - The Sun / Daily Mail
