After announcing Manchester City's withdrawal, Vincent Kompany confirmed that he will continue his career at Anderlecht by playing as a player coach.
"It's the most passionate but rational decision I've ever made," said the Belgian international who returns 13 years later to the training club.
"I imagined this day several times. (…) Now I want to share my knowledge with next-generation Anderlecht, "added the 33-year-old central defender.
After touring Anderlecht's training camp, Kompany spent three years in the Belgian team's main team before moving to the Bundesliga where he wore Hamburg's sweater in two seasons, then he went to Manchester City where he spent the last eleven seasons.
