Vincent Jean Mpoy Kompany, born on 10 April 1986, is a professional Belgian footballer and has served as the captain of Manchester City for ten years. He has got Belgian Golden Shoe award and Belgian Ebony Shoe in 2004. Recently, he has won the Premier League title trophy for the club for the third time, becoming one of the captains of clubs competing in Premier League to win the victory after John Terry and Roy Keane.
In 2006, Kompany transferred from Anderlecht to Bundesliga Hamburger SV with a trans fee €8 million. However, he played only 29 times during three seasons. He could be regarded as a forever substitute in Hamburger SV. Therefore, in the summer of 2008, Hamburger sold him for 6 million euros to Manchester City which was not so excellent at that time. When Kompany joined Manchester City, he quickly became a key member and performed so well. It has been 10 years since then and only Joe Hart who has fought with him at that time is still at Manchester City but is loaned to West Ham United.
Although the 32-year-old Kompany suffers injuries this season, and his contract with Manchester City will expire next summer, he, as an excellent, can continue to play for Manchester City for several seasons. On the other hand, Manchester City certainly does not want this meritorious player to leave the team early. In general, the two sides are likely to renew the contract at the end of the 2017-18 season. No one knows whether the captain will win the fourth or even fifth Premier League title for Manchester City. Fans can support the team and look forward to the result in the future.
