Ex-Man Utd starlet joins Kompany at Anderlecht

New Anderlecht player-manager Vincent Kompany has returned to Manchester City for coach Simon Davies.

Anderlecht made the announcement on Saturday, saying that the 45-year-old Welshman had signed a contract until 2022 to join 'TeamKompany'. Davies is a former Manchester United winger.

"When Vinny asked me to make the move with him to RSC Anderlecht, I didn't hesitate," Davies said in a statement released by the Belgian club.

"We are starting a beautiful project: taking RSC Anderlecht back to the place where they belong, with special emphasis on the development of talented young players."

Davies has worked for Manchester City for nine years, succeeding Patrick Vieira as head of the club's elite development squad, including the Under 23 side.
