Ex-Man City captain Vincent Kompany to be honoured by FWA

Former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is set to be honoured with the Tribute Award by the Football Writers' Association (FWA).

The 33-year-old, now player-manager of Anderlecht, will receive the award at The Savoy Hotel in London on Sunday, January 19.

The FWA has decided to give the award to Kompany for 'not just for his outstanding contribution to English football', but also 'for his charity work, not least via Tackle4MCR, a co-operation with the Mayor of Manchester's office to tackle homelessness in the city'.

The FWA have also acknowledged the MBA which he obtained in Manchester while balancing his playing career with studies, and he is also a FIFA ambassador for the SOS Children charity.
