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.

Vincent Kompany

An Open Letter to the fans.
Part 2 of 2

And yet I choose to rebel against what an end wants to be. I choose to be grateful for the past but remain ambitious and driven for the future.
For the next 3 years, I will take up the role of Player-Manager of RSC Anderlecht.
Belgium’s finest.

This may come as a surprise to you.
It’s the most passionate yet rational decision I’ve ever made.

As a footballer, I was born and raised at RSC Anderlecht.
Since the age of 6, I have been one with that club.
A history of 34 league titles, they are second to none.

The background to this story…
Belgian entrepreneur Marc Coucke acquired the club from the Vanden Stock family in December 2017.
What followed was a post take-over set back for a club that seemed robust but proved fragile.
Although the take-over triggered a positive new vibe, sporting results did not follow.

I stopped at their training grounds on my way to international duty last year. Just to say hello.
Coucke, the chairman, and Sports Director Michael Verschueren asked my opinion regarding the difficult situation the club was in.
I shared my thoughts and listened to their vision for the future: ambitious, courageous and determined to get back to n°1.
I offered my help, no strings attached, should they need it.

Later on in the season, newly appointed Technical Director Frank Arnesen joined and we organized some technical sessions on how to build a strong playing identity based on attractive, attacking football.
RSCA has a tradition of having fantastic youth.
You could say they have the past and the future, but struggle with the present.

Not so long ago, I took a call from RSC Anderlecht.
Quite unexpectedly, they offered me the position of Player-Manager.
Michael and Frank explained to me in detail how they saw it working in practice.
They had thought it through.
Mr. Coucke, the owner, pledged full support: time, budget, framework, staff, facilities …
I was left not only impressed, but also intrigued by this sign of confidence in me.
It got me thinking.

The end of this season couldn’t be more memorable.
I have lived the dream here.
I have learned so much the last 3 years.
From an incredible manager.
Pep Guardiola reignited my love for the game.
I’ve witnessed, participated, analyzed, absorbed, studied.
Man City play the football I want to play.
It is the football I want to teach and to see played.

I have decided to take up the challenge at RSC Anderlecht.
Player-Manager.
I want to share my knowledge with the next purple generations.
With that, I will also put a bit of Manchester in the heart of Belgium.

This is no goodbye. It’s a see you later.
Et pour les Mauves, voor alle Anderlecht fans: tot binnenkort, à très bientôt.

Love,

Vincent

Congratulations vinnie, you immortalised city during your career. Thank you for all the memories and the best of luck in the next step. Anderlecht are lucky to be gaining a fantastic player and human being. Here’s to you Vincent kompany, city loves you more than you will know.

Thanks for all the wonderful memories Skipper. Best of luck with your new adventure. I now have an interest in Belgium football and will watch your career bloom. Hope you come back to City in some role in the future.

Thanks you Vinny, my brother, captain, legend. Thank you our captain Marvelous 💙💙💙 Biglove from Vietnam.

Dear Vincent, this is the best news I heard in a long time on a football level of course. I am truly trilled with you coming back to Sporting. You give hope in dark days and the most beautiful thing is that you have chosen for passion and love for the game and for RSCA instead of money in a highly paid 'fin de carrière' contract somewhere in China or Qatar. With this decision, you show that in these days of commerce and money there is still love for a club and that you rather believe in a true and beautifull story than in another Ferrari or Lamborghini. Welcome back and I hope you bring back our beautiful club and football. Cheers Mate. Wouter.

Well Vincent you continue to show the sense, maturity and foresight that you have showed throughout your career. You have brought our club from adversity to world leaders. You have left at the top with everything you deserve. You are made for management and we will all become Anderlecht fans as a result of you. Thankyou from the bottom of our big city hearts. Good luck and hope you will return one day to lead us again.

Once a sportingboy, always a sportingboy. I got goosebumps reading this! Back to the roots!! 😈⚪️

Zalig! This means so much to all of the fans of RSCA! A great future ahead for all of us!

So glad to have you back at RSCA! This is what we need: a natural leader with true passion and love for the club. Welcome back! 💜

Machtig Vince , welcome home to RSCA!... for city , they had a lot of extra supporters since vince there was (from ourside) .... he is an example for our teams... one of the best "deffending footballers " Belgium will ever have .... so proud he is from and back at RSCA .... !!!😎

Good luck captain and thank you for everything you have done for this club and for inspiring my son to achieve what he has in the game and to dedicate himself to that magical number 4 once again vinnie thank you.

Well said Legend Vinny...you are a role model...your passion to win games is exemplary. I wish you success with your new role as Player-Manager of RSC Anderlecht. I know you will transfer your 11years experience at Manchester City on your new role as player-manager and win many trophies with RSC Anderlecht. Thank you my Legend for your AWESOME service and joy you brought to Manchester City fans world wide.

Here’s to every success to you at RSC Anderlecht, Vincent. I hope that one day you take your rightful place as a future manager at Manchester City. Good luck. 💙

Best wishes and good luck Captain... and thank you for the 11 years. 👍👏🏻🙏🏻

Good luck Skipper. All the best in the new role and thank you for everything you have done for our club x

Excellent news topper! Welcome home! 💜

Vincent....MERCI MERCI MERCI !!! Nous ne pouvions rêver mieux pour nous aider à remonter la pente, vers le sommet, notre unique place! Tu sais aussi à quel point nous aimons les ''club-men'' ,pour qui le blason est tout ! Il n'en reste plus beaucoup dans ce foot moderne....mais tu prouves que tu en es un !! Tu as fait une carrière incroyable, en ta qualité de Prince...il te reste à devenir Roi au Parc Astrid ! Au boulot ! Back to where we belong! COYM ! 🙏💜💜💜

Best news ever! 💜💜💜 Welcome home, Prince!

Waaw, future looks bright now at RSCA. Welcome back in Belgium. 🤩

I’m not an Anderlecht supporter (right colours, wrong team), but I am very pleased with Vinny’s return to Belgian Football. He will bring something extra, as he always did for our national team as well, whether or not he was present on the pitch. Much respect !!

For our new English fans. RSCA stands for Royal Sporting Club Anderlecht. But the last years we were just Sporting Club Anderlecht. With Vince the Prince we're back Royal again.

Vinny, Anderlecht are incredibly lucky to have you. You are an intelligent, inspirational, honorable and loyal gentleman who not only understands the technical game of football but also savvy enough to understand the Business as well. You will be a massive asset to them. I do hope you will remain frequently connected to MCFC because quite frankly you are now part of the beating heart! God speed mate and good luck!

Good luck Vincent, you will be awesome. I love the part where you said you put a bit if Manchester into Belgium. What a guy. Wishing you all the best for your future, don't be a stranger 💙⚽️🏆

Welcome Home Captain, Coach, Champion!

We will really miss you not just as a player and captain but as a great human being .Good luck in Belgium , hopefully you will be back as our manager one day .A city legend who is also always in our hearts x

what I was hoping and wrote in my comment in your part 1... Welcome back Vince the Prince! There is hope again for this club.

An Open Letter to the fans.
PART 1 of 2

Dear all,

Community Shield Winners!
Back 2 back League Cup Winners!
Back 2 back Champions of England!
FA Cup Winners!

We’ve just seen the close of an incredible season.
My 11th as a Blue.
And I cannot believe I’m writing this but ... also my last as a Blue.
Countless of times have I imagined this day, after all, the end has felt nearby for so many years.
It still doesn’t feel real.
Man City has given me everything.
I’ve tried to give back as much as I possibly could.
How often does someone get the chance to end such an important chapter, representing a club with such great history and tradition, in such a great fashion?

The time has come for me to go now.

As overwhelming as it is, I feel nothing but gratefulness.
I am grateful to all those who supported me on a special journey, at a very special club.
I remember the first day, as clear as I see the last.
I remember the boundless kindness I received from the people of Manchester.

I will never forget how all Man City supporters remained loyal to me in good times and especially bad times. Against the odds you have always backed me and inspired me to never give up.

Sheikh Mansour changed my life and that of all the City fans around the world, for that I am forever grateful. A blue nation has arisen and challenged the established order of things, I find that awesome.
I cherish the counsel and leadership of a good human being, Khaldoon Al Mubarak. Man City could not be in better hands.

It’s cliché to say it but it’s also so true: without my teammates I would have never been here today. We fought many battles together. Side by side. In good times and in bad. So to all of you, from the 2008-2009 squad to today’s domestic Treble winners: I owe you guys!

A special word also to Pep and the backroom staff: you’ve been superb. You’ve followed me through so much hardship. You made me come back stronger every time. Thank you so much.

I also want to use this platform to express the love that I have for my nearest and dearest.
It knows no boundaries. Carla, Sienna, Sire and Kai, the one and only quadruple that matters.
My dad (Pierre), Christel and François, my true Invincibles.
I live with only one regret. I would have loved to take my mother, Jocelyne, to the Etihad, seeing her chant the City songs sat next to my children and wife. I would have wanted her to see me happy, playing the game that I love at a club that I love. Deep down, I know she’s been with us through all this time.

Part 2 of this open letter, about my future, will follow shortly …

I am a Red but I’ve the upmost respect for you Vincent you truly are amazing what you done for my family for my dad before he passed away in 2017. Best of luck for your future WE LOVE YOU 💙

I’m incredibly sad, but so very proud of you as a player and a person. You have done yourself and Manchester City proud. I wish you continued happiness and success, and I’m sure we will still see you at the Club we love. All the best Vincent, and thank you for everything you have done. Sincerely

While heart broken at your news you will always have my undying gratitude for the way you have led my club on the field and off. For the wonderful work you do to help others in the community I salute you. For your incredible humanity, dignity and resolve I thank you and wish for you and your family every best wish for your future. Thank you Vinny x

Thank you Vinny you’ve given not only to us fans but Man City and Manchester. Your passion and determination to get us where we are today is just awe inspiring and from the bottom of my heart as a City fan you will forever be City for me. You’ve made some amazing memories and still can make more. I hope whatever your future holds it’s as special as you are and send you so much luck for the future and hope we will see you back as part of the club one day. We love you Vinny 💙💙🏆🏆🏆🏆

An incredible player, and the best leader we could've ever asked for. Thank you so much for everything you've done for the club, best wishes for the future, and I hope we see you back at City someday in another role.

Thank you just dosnt seem enough great footballer and perfect gentlemen thank you Vincent and good luck for part 2 what ever your future holds x💙

Thank you Vinnie. No player has ever given more for this club on the pitch. You truly embodied the passion of the fans and played with your heart on your sleeve every time you stepped onto the pitch. Also for your amazing work off the field helping the homeless in the city we say thank you too. You will always be a City legend. If it was up to me I would give you the keys to the city. Gutted that your leaving, you have given the club and fans so many great memories. The bullet header against United back in 2012 was my personal favourite until your thunderbolt 2 weeks ago. But most importantly, above all, you gave us belief that things were changing. You played a major role in taking this club from a relegation dog fight to the best team the prem has ever seen. So here’s to you Vincent Kompany City loves you more than you will know.

Thank you for everything Vincent. You have not only been a great player, a great captain, but a truly great person. Players come and go from clubs and are remembered with fondness, you will go down in the history of our club as it’s greatest ever captain. You embraced Manchester and it’s people, you became “one of us” you have inspired young fans, young players and team mates to dare to believe and achieve the impossible, you have brought pride back to our club after years in the wilderness and you leave us in a stronger position than us older fans could ever have dreamed or imagined possible. Good luck for the future our captain, you will never leave our hearts

We've all grown to love this man as more than our captain. He has wore the badge with pride and honour. The last part about his mother brought a tear to my eye. Thank you Vinny when's the statue going up 👍🏽👊🏾

Thank you for everything you have done for this club Vincent ❤️ one of our own and a true leader, hope to see you back at the Etihad one day

Fantastic way to go out Vinnie - just hoping Part 2 involves you staying at City and playing a role - hopefully when Pep decides to call it a day you will step into his shoes!! - get the badges done and be ready 😜 - good luck 👍

From a Red across town, great footballer and a gentleman. Wishing you all the very best in the future Vinny.

As a Red been a pleasure to follow your career . You are a brilliant footballer and captain but more importantly a humble man with a mission . Best of luck with everything you do

Thank you for everything you have done for the club and us the fans, we will be eternally grateful to you for what you have done. I wish you and your family all the best in what the future brings you, thank you once again 💙💙

Vinny, what you have done for our club and our City is phenomenal. You are a legend and have played with pride, class, quality and distinction. We as fans are so proud of you and I wish you all the best to you and your family for the future. CTID

Farewell and Thank you so much for the great football you brought, what a pleasure to watch live and on TV.. All the best for your Future 🏆👏💙.. You're a Legend!

Putting football aside for a minute, you have been an inspiration to many and an example to people of a true professional. Your charity work in Manchester alone has helped people in desperate need now and in the future. As for the football, you are quite simply the greatest captain our club has ever known. Your family must be so proud. Good luck in your new adventures sir. You will be missed by all 💜

Noooooo Vinny, don't go. I'm actually gutted, I'm in tears. You was my Joshua's first City hero. What a leader, what a Captain, what a guy. A true Blue. All the very best for the future Captain. You will be greatly missed 💙 What a way to end your City career, leading your boys to the domestic treble and a community shield 💙⚽️🏆🏆🏆🏆 And that goal. Here's to you Vincent kompany, City love you more than you will know 💙 See you at your testimonial. We love you Vinny. City legend 💙 You've been an absolute pleasure to watch, and I'm privileged that I got the chance to meet you with my boys.
