Eleven years ago in August of 2008, Vincent Kompany signed on the dotted line for Man City after they paid German club Hamburg six million pounds sterling for him.
Eleven years ago in May of 2008, Iron Man made his cinematic debut in theaters.
It’s been a journey of ups and downs where both have faced injury on the battlefield
Kompany started in only 17 out of 38 games for Manchester City this season
They’ve also bounced back to celebrate victory
After eleven years, it’s time to move on. For the two people living under a rock that still haven’t seen “Avengers: Endgame,” we won’t spoil the ending for you, but in a figurative sense, Vincent Kompany and Tony Stark have walked hand-in-hand along the same concluding path from the Manchester City and MCU franchises respectively.
After four Premier League titles, two FA Cups and four League Cups, Vincent Kompany announced he is leaving Manchester City. Following the thrashing of Watford 6-0 yesterday to become the first men’s side in English football history to win the domestic treble (Premier League, FA Cup, and League cup aka the EFL/Carabao Cup), Kompany decided to exit on a high note after a glittering career.
As for his next steps, Kompany didn’t turn to China or the United States for a big payday in his post-Man City future. He instead decided to head home to Belgium to build his managerial CV. Not long after his announcement to part ways with City was revealed, it was also disclosed that Kompany will head back to the club he joined as a 17-year-old: R.S.C (Royal Sporting Club) Anderlecht, in the Belgian First Division A league, where he will be an active player and manager.
What do you think about Kompany’s decision? Should he have stayed with City for another year since he never won the Champions League in his eleven years at the club? Should he have gone to China or the United States?
