City To Honour Kompany With Road, Statue

Manchester City have announced the renaming of a road leading up to the club after former captain Vincent Kompany in recognition of his 11 years of service.

The Belgian is also to be honoured with a sculpture outside the Etihad Stadium.

Kompany left at the end of the 2018-19 season, having led City to a domestic treble, to take up a player-manager role at his first club, Anderlecht.

The former captain is back in Manchester for his testimonial match this week, although a hamstring injury has ruled him out of being able to play in the fixture.

City have revealed Kompany’s contribution to the club will be recognised with a sculpture, while a road at their training centre has also been renamed Vincent Kompany Crescent.

“It is an incredible honour to be recognised by this special club in this way,” Kompany told City’s official website.

“The journey that we went on together throughout my 11 years in Manchester changed my life and I am delighted to have played my small part in altering the course of this club’s history during that time.

“To establish a permanent, physical connection with a place that will forever mean so much to me is truly humbling and I will always be grateful to [owner] Sheikh Mansour, [chairman] Khaldoon Al Mubarak and all those associated with City for their unwavering support and kindness.”
