Bellamy tips Man City pal Kompany for politics

Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy says teammate Vincent Kompany is destined to be a great political leader!

Speaking with The Times about his great work with Sierra Leone football, Bellamy was asked about reading on a team bus.

He said: "Being on a coach with 30-odd players is not the time to get into a book. We have a guy at Man City called Vincent Kompany. He takes a lot of the stick that I would get. He is the next Nelson Mandela. If he ain't on his laptop studying, he'll have a Mandela book open. He's very aware, very articulate."
