After 12 English titles in which he wore the Manchester City shirt, Belgian international defender Vincent Kompany announced that he would leave the English Premier League champions in the last two seasons and start a new career with Anderlecht as a player and coach.

The 33-year-old Vincent Kompany joined Manchester City in 2008 from Hamburg, with 360 appearances, scoring 20 goals.
The Belgian – who helped City claim an unprecedented domestic treble after beating Watford in the FA Cup final – has already agreed his next move, taking over at boyhood club Anderlecht as player-manager.

He began his career with Anderlecht as an emerging player and appeared in his first team for three seasons between 2003 and 2006.

In the end of his career with Manchester City, Vincent Kompany thanked the club fans for all these years. He also spoke about his teammates and Spanish coach Pep Guardiola.
