Vincent Jean Mpoy Kompany is a Belgian professional footballer who plays as a centre back and captains both English club Manchester City and the Belgium national team. In the 2011–12 season he was awarded the captaincy of Manchester City, leading his club to win the Premier League that season, their first league title in 44 years. He is also chairman of Belgium D3B Division club BX Brussels.

Kompany began his professional career at Anderlecht, spending three years at the Belgian club before moving to Bundesliga club Hamburg in 2006. In the summer of 2008, at the age of 22, he completed a transfer to his current club, Premier League side Manchester City. He has since established himself as an integral part of the Manchester City squad and is one of the bargain buys of the revolutionised City era, blossoming into one of the Premier League's best centre-backs. Kompany was included in the Premier League Team of the Year for two years in a row in 2011 and 2012 as well as being included in the 2014 team, and won the Premier League Player of the Season in 2012. Regarded as one of the best defenders in the world, he was listed 23rd in 'The 100 Best Footballers in the World' by The Guardian. Description provided by Wikipedia

City fans take notice - the atmosphere was awesome and definitely helped the team. We need that every game and particularly UCL - make the Etihad somewhere teams fear to visit #ctid

Our true blue .. Our Captain and Leader 💙⚽️💙 X X X

What you said to Salah?

Can you tell Bernardo to stop running now please pal 🤐😂😂😂💙💙💙

Well Captain. Atmosphere was bouncing. We need it more often. But must be honest, every game is different, so sometimes thats what it depends on. But we must take this into Champions League Nights. It was electric. Come City Fans lets lift the roof off & push the team forward. CTID

Super Vince ...zo fier op u ....groeten uit België...For ever our Captain ....

The Atmosphere last night was by far the best I have experienced since the days of Joe Mercer and Malcolm Allison. It was as if we had 12 men on the pitch so let's have it every home game fellow blues..... #MCFC

love they way you tackle salah,,,

A glorious night. Unbelievable atmosphere from high up in the South Stand. Well done to the team. I’ll be back at the stadium in the stadium for Rotherham,Burton and Wolves 👍🏽

We can do atmosphere..and with class. No need to damage buses or throw missiles.

Love you vinny. You are our captain, leader and legend. City fans the best in the land and all the world 🌎🌏

Our captain, our leader, our soul 💙💙

Best atmosphere we’ve ever had at that ground! Just what was needed! You was unreal big lad! ✌🏻

Loved it ! Passion and pride shown by all wearing our shirt. You led as always by example. Great game and fantastic result. Proud to be blue x

What a player,what a man..a legend

Vinnie, do you realise how much City fans love you?!! 😍💙⚽️

Mr man city ..that's all skip 👍

Your leadership was higly needed in such a must win encounter.

Thanks for a great team performance Vinnie... great leadership from you again.. Here's to you 💙👕⚽️⭐️

Vinny can u plz let out Salah..that guy has a family

There's a difference between genuine injury, and a player falling over after being tickled #no salad

Angry Egyptians coming in 1,2,3 .....

Very important win. We want to see you signing a contract before end of this season. #ManCity

#Kompany ___ Stop 🚫 do not touch mohamed salah 11, you are not his coach for him give advice in the field, when he was liverpool he win all alone these teams 👉tottinham, man united, chelsea and the big clubs, best players lfp 2018, you have no right to touch him, leave him alone and bawl with time, not for racism,

We will Fight to the End! ⚽️💙🏆 #ManCity #Champions #CaptainKompany

Credit to you for your performance. I was extremely sure that you are gonna start. For the past few games I was like we can't defend anything. Thanks for everything you gave to this club. I hope you stay fit and perform like an animal whenever you play. #ComeOnCity

Without Kompany it is not the same ....we need the Captain always ...thanks Vince....

بتضرب صلاح ليه ياض ياللي تنشك في رجلك

Look good my cousin....wish u all the best.proud of you

WATCHING LIVERPOOL-ARSENAL FOR HOW TO STOP liverpool. 1.Frustrate Mane push him, elbow him. 2.Man-manage Fabinho by running at him. He's slow. 3.*Strong crosses inside their box bothers them very much.Let them leave the match with headaches 4.Shaqiri buckles under pressure. 5.Want the ball more than them, cause they physically fight. 6.They pass the ball into space, mark your man strongly. 7.When in possession, drive forward! Most teams start back-passing, you feed their pressing. 8.While drivin forward, defenders must keep an eye on Salah and Mane cause if you lose it they immediately loop a pass to them over the defence shoulder. 9.Exhaustion-meter: liverpool get VERY TIRED at 60minutes & bad passes start. Preserve your energy to that point by working them. 10. Notice how relaxed they're on the ball.DIStabilize that by hard game. 11.When in their box during counter pass the ball to anyone in-bound.Dont pause for selfies! 12.Robertson is a passenger after 55'. 13.That 5-1 was 3-1 in reality.Penalties

Vaffanculo Company. Very arrogant and should be kicked offffffffff.

Happy Xmas bunnies and familiy

I take it they’ll be sponsoring us next year then hey

Mo Salah, le contenu le meilleur et le plus sale qui soit, équivalent à la moralité, vous n’avez rien de comparable à la moralité et le football est l’éthique du sport et vous êtes immoral, méprisable.

Best captain he can be a best friend also real great guy

Vrolijk kerstmis ! Joyeux noel ! Vous etes un super abassadeur pour les jeunes


Vinny - legend. What you’re doing for the homeless in Manchester is absolutely brilliant but please try and distance your aims from those of Andy Burnham. One of you has Manchester as a priority and the other has personal notoriety and gain as theirs.

Harry Eccles

He maybe a City fan but he is also a bloody Tory who doesn't want to pay his taxes...because it's all his!


Brilliant city player and supporter .......
