Vincent Kompany retires as player to become Anderlecht head coach

Vincent Kompany retires as player to become Anderlecht head coach. “I want to prove that Anderlecht can play a modern style of football.”

Former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has retired as a player to become manager of Anderlecht on a four-year deal.

The four-time Premier League champion joined the Belgian side in a player-manager role in May 2019. He moved into a new position as co-manager to Franky Vercauteren, but has now announced his retirement as a player.

Kompany, 34, left City at the end of the 2018/19 season after making 360 appearances across all competitions in order to return to his boyhood club.

“I want to fully commit to my role as a coach and need 100 per cent of my time and focus for it,” Kompany told the Anderlecht club website. “That’s why I’m quitting as a football player. Our ambition and our hunger remains the same.

“I want to stay with the club for at least four seasons and prove that Anderlecht can play a modern style of football, with results. I want to thank Franky (co-manager Frank Vercauteren) for all his help.”
