Ex-Man City striker Bellamy to join Kompany's Anderlecht

Former Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy is set to be reunited with Vincent Kompany at Anderlecht.

Kompany announced his surprising decision to leave the club and go back to his native country last month following City's Premier League title win.

And it looks like he has turned to old teammate Bellamy to take charge of the Anderlecht academy as the club look to improve on last season's disappointing sixth placed finish in the Belgian First Division, reports the Mirror.

Bellamy posed for a picture with Anderlecht PR director David Steegan, who posted it on his Instagram account with the caption: "My new colleague Craig Bellamy."

Kompany and Bellamy played together for two season between 2009-2011, and are reported to have stayed on speaking terms since then.
