Kompany will now begin his coaching career in full fledge with Anderlecht. He told the club website: “I want to fully commit to my role as a coach and need 100 per cent of my time and focus for it. That’s why I’m quitting as a football player. Our ambition and hunger remain 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.”

The 34-year-old will now start a new phase in his highly decorated career.
