Kompany set for player-manager role

English Premier League

Manchester City legend Vincent Kompany has agreed to join a new club as player-manager after lifting 12 major titles in 11 seasons with the Premier League side.
Kompany, 33, confirmed he would be leaving the Citizens after leading his side to a domestic treble in his final season at the Etihad.
In a feat that has never been achieved in men's English football history, it was a fitting end to the legacy the Belgium captain left since joining the club from Bundesliga side Hamburg as 22-year-old.
Shortly after he announced his exit from Pep Guardiola's side after 360 games and four Premier League titles, his former club Anderlecht announce he would be returning in the new season.
"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," he wrote on his official Facebook page.
"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."
Kompany made his debut for the Belgian club at the tender age of 17 and went on to leave for Germany in 2006 before his succesful stint in the English top-flight.
