The former Manchester City captain was a class act in so many ways. A captain and leader on the pitch, a philanthropist off it, and an inspiration for all aspiring footballers who are trying to emulate his success.

On Wednesday night, the Etihad hosted the 33-year-old’s testimonial. And while Kompany was missing through injury, a misfortune he jokingly claimed to be “typical”, it gave fans and players one last proper opportunity to appreciate their former captain for what he was and still is – an exemplary professional.
Amongst those to admire him was under-21s talent Tosin Adarabioyo…
The Manchester-born defender spent last season on loan at West Bromwich Albion, where he was trusted to hold the line for 30 Championship games for the promotion-chasing side. Blackburn Rovers are the latest club to host his talents on a temporary basis.
We’re sensing a potential Kompany replacement somewhere down the line, as it is clear the young prospect aspires to be like his parent club’s skipper.
