Manchester City's Vincent Kompany rejects call for netting

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany plays down calls for the introduction of netting to protect players, saying fans should not be treated "like animals".

Kompany wants action to be taken after his Manchester United counterpart Rio Ferdinand was struck by an object as he celebrated Robin van Persie's winner in their 3-2 victory over City on Sunday.

But, the Belgian international is against netting going up at grounds as he says it would be treating fans as "animals that have to be behind cages".
