However, there were doubts about his appointment. Was it Kompany’s penchant for polished football and young players that he would capture in the physically demanding tournament?

“The fact that Kompany was able to do it so quickly has also to do with the many conversions he was allowed to make himself.”

Familiar letter

It stands out during the entire conversation with Dan Black. Much of what he says about Vincent Kompany’s early months sounds familiar since Kompany’s time in Anderlecht.
