Kompany’s decision to sign a new deal came despite interest in the Belgium international’s services from Barcelona.
But with Mancini’s team billed as favourites to retain their title in the coming season, despite the lack of new arrivals so far this summer, Kompany admits he is determined to see the club justify their status and build a trophy-winning dynasty.
“I won’t get another 20 years out of my career unfortunately, I probably have 10 more years at best, so I want to win as much as possible.” Kompany said.
“I have signed a six-year deal, so there are six titles possible within those years, and you know what? I want to get them all.
“It probably won’t happen, but we will see in six years’ time. I will try everything for that.”
Outside of 12-time
So the challenge facing City is clear, particularly with both United and Chelsea strengthening their squads since the end of last season.
But Kompany, speaking at the launch of a partnership between SOS Children's Village Beijing and Manchester City, insists that Mancini’s team is ready to take on the challenge of delivering sustained success to the Etihad.
“That's the aim.” Kompany said. “We've achieved something now and people will expect the same.
“But what makes the Premier League the most competitive league in the world is that there will be four of five teams with their heads on the line, all thinking they can win it.
“So if we win it, there will be three or four other teams under massive pressure and if someone else wins it, then we'll be one of those teams under pressure – that's the nature of the league.
“But I still like to believe for us that we can improve. If we can improve on our points total, then we'll be up there with the top teams again.
“We have a competition on our hands, though, that is clear. You can clearly see all the other teams have reacted to what happened last season and come out stronger.
“But I think we'll come out stronger too because we're one season further down the line in terms of playing together, which was always our problem, the fact that we hadn't gelled over a long period of time.
“There is a big margin for us to improve, and that's all I'm looking for really, whether our main competitor is United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool or Tottenham.
“I think the biggest mistake we could make would be to focus just on our neighbours, as there are a lot of other teams in the competition.
“If other teams want to call themselves favourites then fine, be our guest. All we're trying to do is be better than last season.”
But for Aguero’s finish against QPR, City would have faced missing out on their first title in 42 years and handing United their 20th championship.
Yet despite the dramatic ending to City’s campaign, Kompany admits that he has only watched the finale once since the title was won.
He said: “I’ve only watched it back once. People keep sending me the YouTube moment on Twitter, saying they have been watching it 20 times.
“I have tried to get myself out of it, but it’s quite difficult because you keep getting drawn back to it by the fans.
“It’s just the last few minutes. There’s not much else to watch in the game!
“The crazy thing is that the first-half was almost too easy. It was 1-0 and we should have scored four or five – there was nothing coming back from QPR.
“But as soon as we came back on the pitch in the second-half, it was 2-1 to QPR and we were all looking each other, thinking ‘what’s happening here?’
“We always bounced back last season, though. Maybe we would be talking differently now if ‘Kun’ (Aguero) didn’t score that goal.
“But things happen for a reason and I look back on the season and think that this group of guys deserved it.”
Although City have yet to boost their squad, Mancini has identified Arsenal captain Robin van Persie as his prime target.
United and Juventus are also trailing the Dutch forward, who is understood to be keen on a move to Old Trafford, despite the financial power at City’s disposal.
But Kompany admits that whoever signs Van Persie will be securing the services of one of the world’s best forwards.
Kompany said: “He is a player who has improved so much. I started playing against him five or six years ago, but his performances last season were unbelievable.
“A player like this would be an incredible addition to any team that he joined. His movement is near perfection and the stats show his finishing. He has led by example at Arsenal, so yes, he is a great player.
Kompany’s involvement in the SOS Children’s Village has seen the former Hamburg defender visit similar projects in Congo and Vietnam. He has also made a five-figure donation to the initiative.
And with the club rewarding him with a new long-term contract, Kompany admits he was keen for the new deal to coincide with greater involvement in the charity.
He said: “I’m delighted to have signed the contract, but I wanted the announcement to go alongside the launch of the partnership.
“These projects make such a difference and I wanted them to benefit from my new contract too.”
