Former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany questions critics after Premier League charges
| Last updated
Vincent Kompany has hit back at Manchester City's critics, following their Premier League charges, claiming other clubs shouldn't be pointing fingers.
It's been a bit of a free for all against City, ever since it was confirmed that they had been charged by the league over a number of financial breaches.
Should the club be found guilty then there's any number of punishments that could be handed out to them, with a points deduction expected by some.
Others want the Premier League champions to be stripped of the six titles they have previously won, which could see three extra wins each for rivals Manchester United and Liverpool.
If City get relegated for their troubles then they could even fall out of the Football League altogether, with the EFL under no obligation to accept them.
Kompany, who is currently leading Burnley out of the EFL in the opposite direction, and back into the Premier League, thinks City's critics have other motives.
"I kind of look at it and sometimes roll my eyes a little bit," the former City captain told Sky Sports.
"No doubt there's a lot of righteousness in the world to come and tell you what you've done wrong, and then if everybody looks at themselves, I think the football industry in general is not one that can afford to point the finger too many times.
"I think all of you will have a little bit of a smile on your face to know what the football industry is about. I'm very sceptical when people start pointing fingers.
"Do the best for yourself and let's try and improve all the time but I'm a little bit sceptical when the fingers get pointed easily."
The former centre-back captained the club and helped them win four Premier League titles, during his 11 years at the Etihad Stadium.
He became a club hero during his spell there and now has a statue outside the stadium, along with Sergio Aguero and David Silva, fellow legends of their era.
It's no surprise that he is being extra protective of the club, especially with former Liverpool and Manchester United players wondering if they can essentially steal title wins from Kompany and others.
He could be one of the favourites to take over from Pep Guardiola, if the City boss decides to step away from the club, should they be found guilty.
