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

The fact the team are stronger than ever is no surprise when they have as committed a leader as yourself Vinny. You lead them by example... no team can ever have had such a shining example as you, to instil in them what it means to battle, never give up and play with pride. X

Hard three points before we got there inthe end πŸ’™ We fight till the end πŸ’™πŸ’™

Telt yeah Terry patience!! Dave's over the moon with the Toon!! Hibs won too ha! ha!! I xxx

Sometimes it’s just a matter of seeing it through. πŸ‘

my brother another mother

Keep it up, CaptainπŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™ Come on CityπŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

Well done βœ… let's keep winning mr kompany

The boss captained the side to a great victory again!

Good win, tight game & very important win!!!!CTID!!!!

Keep going, Liverpool will drop points.

Another 3 points .. Keep them coming πŸ˜€πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ’™πŸ†

I am skyblue...I am Citizen...I am Man city...

Clovis your words changes with respect to the circumstances and poor performance oy you club... I told you yesterday you guys are very lucky the weekend will have better say....

They defended really well xx but we kept going well done lads xx

Well played guys. Another vital 3 points.

Well played last night vinny

Well done, we'll fight to the end, I love this team

Hard fought for sure Vinny the blessed captain in the Premier league. But managed to collect maximum points. C'MON CITY

Some cracking football, don’t look back!!!

Need to keep an eye on that goal difference dippers scoring 5 to our 1 any more they will overtake us

You guys were kind of wasteful in front of goal yesterday. No disrespect to Fabianski for some brilliant saves, but I think you guys created enough to score 3 or more. This title race might just go down to the wire & be decided by goal difference. Congrats to the team for getting the results. Let's recover & prepare for Bournemouth

Jolly good ...........(kompany) πŸ˜¬πŸ’™

but, it seems that now a days city fail to fire.

Hard to watch sometimes, but a well earned win...keep it going Blues xx πŸ’™βš½οΈπŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†

Well done we got best captain ever ❀️
