Manchester City youngster Lukas Nmecha has revealed that Vincent Kompany is doing a good job to help him develop as a player.
19-year-old Ntchema made his professional debut in the Carabao Cup quarter-final against Leicester in December and has committed his future to the club for another three years.
He is a product of the City youth development system after being snapped up by the Academy as a nine-year-old.
He told the club’s website: “Kompany roughs me up in training but he’s really given me a lot of confidence because he’s played against the best strikers in the world and he’s telling me I can make it.
“I’ll probably have to go out on loan and show what I can do. I just need to learn and get more experience but I think once I start playing first team football regularly then I’ll start to improve naturally.”
