Bio: Captain, leader, defensive rock – Vincent Kompany is one of the most decorated skippers in the club’s history.

Strong in the air, comfortable on the ball, accurate in the tackle and always ready to nip in and pinch the ball off a striker’s toes, the Belgian was a steal from Hamburg at just £6million in 2008.

A natural leader, he was handed the armband in 2011 and has since captained the side to two Premier League titles and the Capital One Cup.

Multi-lingual and multi-talented, Kompany began his career with Anderlecht and scooped a host of awards for a series of composed performances in the Belgian Premier League and Champions League that attracted interest from across the continent.

A further two years at Hamburg was enough to convince Mark Hughes and with more than two centuries of appearances Kompany proved one of the Welshman’s most astute buys, coming of age in the 2010-11 campaign when he was voted into the Premier League Team of the Year and collected the City Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year gongs.

A key figure in the title triumph of 2012 – including that goal in the Manchester derby in April – Kompany has gone from strength to strength in a City shirt and has collected a clean sweep of England’s domestic honours.

Scorer of the second goal against West Ham that clinched the club’s second Premier League title in 2014, he has committed his long term future to the club with a contract extension running until 2019.
