Vincent Kompany - The Leader
A Manchester City legend and in his day, one of the best centre-backs in world football.
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.
Kompany is the kind of player that can lift a performance. His dominant & composed presence gave his team confidence.
