Vincent Kompany made a dig towards Cristiano Ronaldo when questioned on the prospect of signing the forward for Burnley.
The former Manchester City captain did not hesitate to make a joke regarding Ronaldo to his fellow pundits in the BBC studio.
Kompany is currently overseeing his first year in charge of Burnley after two years in charge of Anderlecht. He has got his squad in fine form too, as they currently sit first-placed in the Championship and have lost only two matches out of 21 played.
When asked by Gary Lineker if he would sign Ronaldo for his club, he responded: “We need players who can run.”
