Manchester City legend Vincent Kompany will be immortalized at the club.
The captain during City’s four Premier League title wins in the last eight seasons, the reigning champs announced on Wednesday that a sculpture of Kompany is planned.
In a statement released ahead of Kompany’s testimonial game, City confirmed the statue will take pride of place outside the Etihad Stadium.
“Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak revealed that we have also begun the process of commissioning a sculpture to publicly recognise and celebrate Vincent’s achievements and contributions which will take pride of place outside the Etihad Stadium.”
Also a road linking the first team training area and the youth team training center has also been named “Vincent Kompany Crescent” in another tribute to the Belgian center back.
Kompany spent 11 years at Man City, winning 10 major trophies as he was one of the first signings made by the then new owners from Abu Dhabi.
He left Man City at the end of last season, rejoining his boyhood club Anderlecht in a player-manager role.
