Kompany set to become player-manager at Anderlecht

19 May 2019, 14:40

Vincent Kompany has signed a three year deal with Belgian club Anderlecht after his departure from Manchester City. 

The 33-year-old defender announced his exit from the Premier League champions on Sunday morning but maintains he wants to share his knowledge with the next purple generations. 

"I have decided to take up the challenge at RSC Anderlecht. Player-Manager," a part of a statement he shared on Facebook said. 

"I want to share my knowledge with the next purple generations. With that, I will also put a bit of Manchester in the heart of Belgium.

"This may come as a surprise to you. It's the most passionate yet rational decision I've ever made.

"As a footballer, I was born and raised at RSC Anderlecht. Since the age of 6, I have been one with that club. A history of 34 league titles, they are second to none."

Kompany came through the ranks at Anderlecht before moving to Hamburg in 2006.
