Vincent Kompany net worth: How much is the Anderlecht player-manager worth? | Football | Sport
Vincent Kompany joined Anderlecht at the age of six and his career has now come full circle after a trophy-laden spell at Manchester City.
The central defender was signed by Mark Hughes from German club Hamburg in the summer of 2008, days before the Sheikh Mansour takeover.
He became a key figure in the success which followed, making 360 appearances, and leaves City having won four Premier League titles, two FA Cups and four League Cups.
Kompany announced on his Facebook page: “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.
“This may come as a surprise to you. It’s the most passionate yet rational decision I’ve ever made.”
Kompany revealed that he had met with Anderlecht chairman Marc Coucke and sporting director Michael Verschueren last summer.
“I shared my thoughts and listened to their vision for the future: ambitious, courageous and determined to get back to number one,” he wrote.
“I offered my help, no strings attached, should they need it.”
