Anderlecht player-manager Kompany hands over matchday coaching duties

Vincent Kompany Anderlecht 2019-20

Money raised from the match will go to Tackle4MCR - the initiative that Kompany set up with the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, to address rough sleeping and homelessness in the city.

Anderlecht are now sitting 13th in league after their opening four games, picking up just two points after draws against Mouscron and Mechelen.

Vincent Kompany will concentrate on playing football for Anderlecht and will no longer be player-manager during match days.

Manchester City have confirmed that ten former Manchester United players will line up for the Premier League All-Stars in Vincent Kompany's testimonial next month, as the likes of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Robin van Persie will take to the pitch at the Etihad.

Assistant coach Simon Davies says he will now take responsibility for tactical changes and substitutions, while Kompany will step up on the field as captain.

"We need some stability and one of those things that's going to change straight away is Vinny is going to be captain from the next game".

'He must be able to really lead the team on the field.


"We work so well during the week".

"But it is important that he is a player on match day, so this is one thing we are learning about each other now". Vinnie and the club have a vision, and we all work to it as a staff.

"So, together with my staff, I will take on the tactics next to the field".

"This is one of the things that we're going to try".

Kompany left City at the end of last season after winning the Premier League title (Nick Potts, PA). This is a new and different situation. Davies was Chester City manager back in 2008.

The Manchester City legend returned to his boyhood club this summer after taking the player-coach role, but has so far overseen Anderlecht's worst start in 21 years.
