Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany has heaped praise on Pep Guardiola after their 5-0 win over Crystal Palace, saying the Catalan coach's 'tactical and technical assessments are like nothing I've ever seen before.'
"Pep's tactical and technical assessments are like nothing I've ever seen before and I think that's why people enjoy to see him fail," Kompany told Sky Sports.
"It's normal, someone that's been successful that many times, you have one season where it's not going your way and people want to focus on it - that's what creates news and creates entertainment.
"But in reality I can vouch for him in the sense that I've been around a lot of top people in football and all of them had qualities, but he's really special.
"It's not come off this season but there's no doubt in my mind that, with the right amount of time and a season where things go a bit more our way, he's capable of delivering extremely good things."
