Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany has done something that many young children always dream of doing. He’s bought his own football club.
Kompany has bought third division Belgian side FC Bleid, who currently sit 19th in the table. The Brussels side will be renamed, will have a new logo selected as well as new kits and a new slogan. Kompany is serious about the decision and has launched his own website to share his manifesto.
