Vincent Kompany has been appointed Anderlecht head coach on a four-year deal after ending his playing career.

The ex-Manchester City captain rejoined the Belgian club as player-manager last summer but relinquished his managerial duties on match days in August in order to concentrate on playing.

The 34-year-old replaces Franky Vercauteren as Anderlecht boss.

Kompany spent 11 years with City, eight of them as club captain, before rejoining boyhood club Anderlecht in 2019.

As a player, he won the Belgian First Division twice, before picking up four Premier League titles, two FA Cups and four League Cups in England.

He won 89 caps for Belgium.

Kompany will take charge of Anderlecht for the first time against Mouscron on Sunday, August 24, 2020.
