Fresh off Manchester City’s 6-0 win over Watford on Sunday, 19 May, skipper Vincent Kompany has announced that he will be leaving the Citizens to become player/manager of Belgian club, RSC Anderlecht.

The 33-year-old Belgian centre-back – who has been a mainstay in the club for 11 years – confirmed the news in an open letter posted on his official Facebook page.

He wrote: “The time has come for me to go now. As overwhelming as it is, I feel nothing but gratefulness [sic]. I am grateful to all those who supported me on a special journey, at a very special club.”

Kompany added: “I want to share my knowledge with the next purple generations.
With that, I will also put a bit of Manchester [City] in the heart of Belgium.”

The centre-back joined City from Hamburg in 2008. Making 360 appearances over 11 years, he has won four Premier League titles, two FA Cups, four League Cups and two Community Shields with the club.
