NO WAY PAST: Kompany's strength won many a battle with big-name centre forwards but he had a lot more to his game.

 

Strong, agile and intelligent, Vincent Kompany was the rock of Manchester City's excellent defensive performances. A true leader, he was totally committed to defending. After playing in midfield early in his career, he made the centre back position his own.
