Manchester City fans on Twitter have paid tribute to Vincent Kompany after it was revealed that the defender would be leaving the club after 11 years of service.
The Citizens signed the Belgian from Hamburg for around £10m back in 2008, and what a signing he has turned out to be.
Relive all the drama of Man City v Spurs through the eyes Spurs’ fans in the video below…
Kompany won four Premier League titles during his time at the Etihad Stadium, playing a crucial role in each successful campaign. The 33-year-old also won two FA Cups, the League Cup on four occasions, and the Community Shield twice.
He will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest players in the club’s history, and even when it looked like his powers were fading, an unbelievable strike in his last home game against Leicester was crucial in retaining the title.
Kompany will now take on a player-manager role at his former club Anderlecht, and the City fans on Twitter have certainly been hit hard by the news…

We better be seeing a statue, a stand named after him. A training ground named after him. Give him anything he wants. It’s the least he deserves pic.twitter.com/sTREb1OAgf
