Tweet your team talk City fans urged

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany asks fans to Tweet their inspirational derby day team talks

Manchester City and Belgium International Captain, Vincent Kompany, has announced his arrival on Twitter by launching a once in a life-time competition, asking fans to tweet  their inspirational team talks to him, in order to inspire the Blues to victory over United in their upcoming FA Cup clash.

Rather than discouraging their players from using the social networking platform, City are urging fans to follow @VincentKompany, to not only gain an insight into his world as he prepares for the big game on 8 January, at the Etihad Stadium, but also get the chance to suggest what they would say, if they were the captain on the day.

All fans need to do is tweet their words of wisdom to @VincentKompany, along with the hashtag #followthecaptain. 

The most inspirational tweet will be chosen by Kompany and the winner will not only receive Kompany’s match day shirt and captain’s armband from the game, but also a poster of their motivational speech, signed by the skipper himself, as a memento.

Commenting on the ‘follow the captain’ competition, Vincent Kompany, said:

“I just hope that by joining twitter I can get closer to the people that are prepared to support me in the good and bad times by giving them an insight into what it means to be playing for the fastest growing club in the world and a young promising national team.”

Vincent Kompany becomes the latest City player to join the social media phenomenon, following in the footsteps of fellow teammates: Adam Johnson @AJohno_11, Nigel De Jong @NDJ_Official, Samir Nasri @SamNasri19, Sergio Aguero @aguerosergiokun and Micah Richards @OfficialMR2.
