Anderlecht assistant coach Davies: We'll seek Man City loan additions

Anderlecht assistant coach Simon Davies admits they plan to go back to Manchester City for loan players this summer.

Davies has followed Vincent Kompany from Manchester City after the former club captain was named Anderlecht player-manager.

He said, "Vinnie is supposed to be playing for a few more years. He's still very happy about that. By the way, I see a lot of talented players walking around here. It is now important to give them back that confidence.

"A good player doesn't just become a bad one day after another. The first few weeks everyone will get a chance to make a good impression, afterwards we will thin the core.

"We would like to borrow one or two players from Manchester City, but we have to see what is good for both sides."
