PSG fullback Meunier hails Kompany courage for taking Anderlecht job

PSG fullback Thomas Meunier is happy for Vincent Kompany over his move to Anderlecht.

Kompany is leaving Manchester City to take charge of Anderlecht as player-manager.

Meunier said of his Belgium teammate: "I find it brave because he does not have much to gain by going to Anderlecht as a player-coach, even manager, which is a little different.

"Now, back to basics, I find it beautiful. I thought Vincent was going to take a vacation and go to the United States or Asia. Go for a walk and discover the world. Well no, he came back to Brussels.

"Hat off to him because it is a very beautiful challenge."
