Vincent Kompany will take up a player/manager role at RSC Anderlecht after confirming his departure from Manchester City after 11 years.
The City captain, who led the Blues to an unprecedented treble of domestic trophies in the 2018/19 season, has agreed a three-year contract with the Belgian club.
The announcement came after Kompany called time on an illustrious Blues career that garnered 10 trophies.
Kompany's final City goal - a 30-yard strike against Leicester - ensured the final day of the Premier League title race with Liverpool remained in City's hands.
The 33-year-old then lifted the FA Cup after City's 6-0 thrashing of Watford at Wembley, equalling the scoreline record set in 1903 by Bury.
Kompany had been in talks with City over a new one-year contract to remain at the Etihad, but said the decision to return to Anderlecht, where he graduated through the youth ranks, was the 'most passionate yet rational decision I've ever made'.
