Belgian star, Vincent Kompany announced he is leaving Manchester City


Manchester City captain, Vincent Kompany has announced that he will leave Manchester City after 11 trophy-laden years to become player-manager of Anderlecht.
Belgian defender Kompany joined City in 2008 and made 360 appearances, winning four Premier League titles, two FA Cups, four League Cups and two Community Shields.
The 33-year-old signed off with a victory in the FA Cup final on Saturday, where the club captain lifted the trophy after City thrashed Watford 6-0 to complete a domestic treble.
“As overwhelming as it is, the time has come for me to go. And what a season to bow out,” Kompany said.
“I feel nothing but gratefulness. I am grateful to all those who supported me on a special journey, at a very special club.”
Anderlecht is the Belgian club where Kompany began his professional career before joining Hamburg and he admitted he is relishing the chance to move into management.
“I choose to be grateful for the past but remain ambitious and driven for the future. For the next three years, I will take up the role of player-manager of Anderlecht. Belgium’s finest,” he wrote on Facebook.“This may come as a surprise to you. It’s the most passionate yet rational decision I’ve ever made.”
