City captain Vincent Kompany is set to take part in the Premier League’s first Facebook and Twitter driven live post-match interview.
After the final whistle of City’s clash against Blackburn Rovers this Saturday at the Etihad Stadium, the skipper will face the media as usual; however this time, it will also be the fans asking the questions…
Fans are being given the chance to ask their questions by simply tweeting their requests to @vincentkompany, using the hashtag #askvincent. Supporters not on twitter need not worry, as they can also post their questions on Vincent’s Facebook page.
The interview will also be streamed live from 8pm UK time this Saturday across the following links:
City Facebook: www.facebook.com/mcfcofficial
City Live: http://live.mcfc.co.uk
City YouTube: www.youtube.com/mcfcofficial
Commenting on the upcoming Q&A, Vincent Kompany, said:
“I just wanted to use social media to give ours fans the chance to have their voices heard, instead of shouting at the TV, wishing the interviewer would ask the kinds of questions that really matter to them.”
The live follows on from Vincent’s arrival on twitter last January when he launched his ‘Follow the Captain’ campaign, giving fans the chance to inspire the team on derby day.
