Vincent Kompany shows what a sound man he is with fine gesture of support for Belgium U’17 keeper

Classy and funny


Vincent Kompany is widely seen as a professional footballer everyone can admire.

The Man City and Belgium captain is always an honest player on the pitch, and speaks eloquently about the game whenever he features on Match of the Day.

Kompany showed what a leader he is on Friday, when he gave his support to Belgium youngster Jens Teunckens.

The keeper made a terrible call of judgement in the Under-17 side’s exit from the World Cup against Mali, but Kompany was quick to reassure him that it happens to even the best players…


The goalkeeper apologised on Twitter, before Kompany reminded him that ‘no-one is perfect and head up for the next challenge‘ – linking to a video of his own goal against Fulham two years ago.
