Vincent Kompany: Manchester City defender to be new player-manager of Anderlecht as the player revealed his new job on social media.
Manchester City recently revealed that Vincent Kompany has decided to leave the club this summer, as he feels his time with the Citizens is over.
In further advancements, it is revealed that the Belgian International will join Anderlecht from the following season.
The 33-year-old defender himself announced his departure from the club, after serving them for 11 years, and further revealed his next destination in a series of two online posts.
Vincent Kompany was a really crucial player in Manchester city’s success in the last decade as under his guidance the club have won four Premier League titles, two FA Cups, four League Cups and two Community Shields.
On the other hand, it was expected that Kompany will leave Pep Guardiola’s side this summer as he refrained to extend his contract with the club, despite being an important player in the squad.
Therefore, it couldn’t have been a better farewell for the club captain, as he ended his Manchester City career at a high profile after securing the first ever English domestic treble while defeating Watford by 6-0 in the FA Cup final.
The Belgian international is returning to his boyhood club, where he appeared 103 times between 2003 and 2006, making his debut aged 17 after coming through the youth ranks.
Since then, the Belgian club have hit on tough times and it seems that Kompany wants to help them to achieve the previous glory under his leadership.
