Vincent Kompany has been one of the most influential figures in Manchester City’s morden history and the Belgian defender could once again have an impact on the club but in different capacity.
Kompany left City for Anderlecht in the re of a player-manager last summer, and according to Het Belang van Limburg, Vincent has also invested in the Jupiler Pro League side. The headline read: ‘Vincent Kompany: After player and manager, now also an investor’.
There are recent reports claiming Pep Guardiola tried to convince Vincent Kompany to become his assistant at Manchester City and fill in the void left by Mikel Arteta’s departure in midst of the ongoing campaign as Mikel was named head coach of Arsenal earlier this year.
Guardiola wanted Kompany but the Belgian decided to stay in Belgium as Het Belang van Limburg states, ‘Vince The Prince’ is the future of Anderlecht and he ‘consciously chose’ them.
Another outlet, DH also made claims about Guardiola’s attempt in bringing back Vincent Kompany. They wrote, ‘Given that Kompany’s wife is from Manchester, his first season at Anderlecht was a failure and that he dreams of becoming Manchester City’s head coach, one would have thought that he would’ve said yes to Guardiola.’
However, the former City captain ‘refused’ to become Guardiola’s assistant at City as he wants to succeed at Anderlecht ‘at all costs’.
