Vincent Kompany announced on Sunday that he is leaving Manchester City at the end of the season and will take up the role of Player-Manager at boyhood club Anderlecht.

City captain Kompany had the armband during the most successful spell in the club's history and signs of his 11th year with a historic domestic treble of Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup.

The Belgian defender was signed just before the Abu Dhabi takeover in August 2008, so has been present throughout the club's rise over the past decade.

In the photo gallery above, we look at Kompany's time at City - from Uefa Cup fixtures against Aalborg in 2009 through to the present day and the historic treble-winning side.
