The Reds were 25 points ahead of City at the top and were on their way to a first title in 30 years when the top flight was suspended on March 13 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Premier League clubs remain committed to ending the season and are continuing their “project restart” plan to resume the campaign next month.
Jurgen Klopp’s team only need two wins in their nine remaining games to end City’s reign as champion and move Liverpool to a single Manchester United record triumph with 20 titles.
During the suspension, the Reds had to listen to a number of rival clubs and the opposing players asked that the season be declared null and void, an option which is no longer considered by the authorities.
And when asked about the Liverpool title’s limbo, Kompany said, “I can imagine and I can understand – how bad your luck is, no.
“But we have to hope that the legitimate winners will get everything they deserve. “
Liverpool finished second behind City last season despite earning a club record 97 points, with Kompany’s laggard in the penultimate game of the season for Pep Guardiola’s team against Leicester City, largely considered the moment that deprived the Reds of the title.
