Vincent Kompany enters the "Hall of Fame"
The former captain of the Red Devils also sported the colours of Manchester City, a club with which he won many trophies. Today, he has joined the closed ranks of the legendary players of the English Premier League.
Based on a public vote on the internet and the recommendations of a panel of Premier League experts, only a few players who have completed their professional careers are awarded this distinction.
The former Red Devil is one of eight new members revealed this year and enters the "Hall of Fame" of football players who have excelled in the English league.
The first Belgian player to benefit from such a privilege, Vincent Kompany enters the "corridor of fame" to join other big names, such as Argentina's Sergio Agüero, the Ivorian Didier Drogba, Denmark's Peter Schmeichel, France's Patrick Vieira and England's Wayne Rooney, and Paul Scholes and Ian Wright, also selected in 2022. Last year, David Beckham, Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Roy Keane, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Alan Shearer and Eric Cantona also entered the Hall of Fame.
Today, at the age of 36, the man who was the captain of the Red Devils for so many years is still active in football but as a coach at Royal Sporting Club Anderlecht, his training club.
