Anderlecht assistant manager Davies defends Kompany over sack talk

Anderlecht assistant manager Simon Davies has defended the work of player-boss Vincent Kompany.

There's talk the former Manchester City pair could be sacked if they lose in the Cup tonight against Beerschot.

Davies said, “Vinnie works very hard for the club to bring us back to where Anderlecht should be.

"We will reverse this and get results quickly.

"The injuries, the many young players and the new system cost us a lot of time. It is a process that requires a lot of time and effort. Together with my staff we continue to focus on the process. But talking about it is easy, of course, we have to show it on the field."
