Anderlecht announced the news on Sunday morning

Vincent Kompany has been named as the new player/manager of Belgian giants Anderlecht, after announcing that he would leave current club Manchester City following their FA Cup final win on Saturday.

Kompany revealed early on Sunday morning that this season would be his last at City, the club where he has played 360 games and scored 20 goals over 11 years.

Shortly after that announcement, Kompany confirmed that his next position in football would be that of player/manager at the club where he began his career, Anderlecht.

Using the hashtag #ThePrinceIsBack, the video styles Kompany’s return to the club as a hero returning to save his former club, and let’s just say that it is very effective indeed.

Belgium’s most successful ever club, Anderlecht finished 11 points off the pace during the country’s regular season, and are now bottom of the league’s championship round robin, with just one win in their last nine games.

The new role will be Kompany’s first foray into management after a glittering playing career which saw him win four Premier League trophies, two FA Cups, four League Cups and two Community Shields.
