Belgian native Vincent Kompany, who regularly plays for Manchester City, has decided to give something back to his roots and the sport that has given him the life he has. Kompany recently bought a club in Brussels, FC Bleid, which is placed last in the third division of Belgium. According to Kompany, that’s ideal position. He wrote in a press message that he wants to build a club that really stands for something.
Kompany plans to only use young players from Brussels, and wants to provide them with the opportunities and prove that nothing is impossible. That doesn’t just apply to soccer as Kompany is very passionate about giving these young players “the whole package”. He wants them to become successful in other aspects of life as well, and has said that “this project is more than just kicking a ball”.
Since Kompany is occupied with Manchester City, he will hire people to run the club according to his plans and his sister will have the responsibility while he is not there. This is an amazing way to give the kids who see him as a role model a chance to reach their goals and dreams, and hopefully this will resonate with them so that they pass along the same gesture.
