Vincent Kompany

Ex Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has finally announced his retirement from professional football  as he steps into a permanent managerrole at Anderlecht.

In May 2019, Kompany joined Anderlecht as a player-manager, and now he’s shifting his focus entirely to management.

According to the Daily Mail, the 34-year-old had a conflict with co-manager Frank Vercauteren, as they were constantly in the loggerheads of their club visions.

Anderlecht managed to finish eight on the Belgian First Division A standings last season as Kompany registered one goal from 15 league appearances.

The Belgian defender found his groove at Manchester City in the summer of 2008 from German side Hamburger SV.

He quickly rose to the occasion and was handed the captain’s armband and helped inspired City to their first-ever Premier League title in the 2011/12 season and three more during his stint at the club.

Vincent Kompany also won two FA Cups, four League cups and two Community Shields on his way to being a player that won’t easily be forgotten even into his retirement.
