Manchester City stars Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero say they are excited by the future prospects of the Barclays Premier League champions.

Skipper Kompany said he was delighted because he believed the club was laying the foundations of long-term success.

"The project here is not just sporting - it will bring a lot to the city and the people"

"We’re going to build a new training centre to bring together the junior and senior players," he said.

"The project here is not just a sporting one. It will bring a lot to the city and to the people.

"The project is to take the club back to its former glories but people won’t see this for perhaps another 10 years. I’m happy to be part of all that.

"It’s not a three-year project but rather one for 10, 15, 20 years.

"It’s exciting to think I can be part of taking the club where it wants to go."

The Belgian, who is set to play for his country against England at Wembley Stadium on Saturday June 2nd, said he is keen to win more silverware with City.

"Scoring against QPR was the best moment of my career, of course"

"What interests me is Manchester City.  We can’t stop with the title,” he said.

"We want to win the UEFA Champions League. Is it possible in three to four years? Maybe not, but when I see what’s been achieved at the club in the last few years, nothing is impossible."

His thoughts were echoed by Aguero, who scored the dramatic injury-time winner in City's 3-2 victory over Queens Park Rangers on the final day of the season to secure the Barclays Premier League title.

"That was the first league title I have won in my career - now I want to win more," he said.

He added: "There is great spirit between the players. There is no better proof of that than what happened at the end of the season... Scoring [against QPR] was the best moment of my career, of course."
