The iconic defender returned to his former club - RSC Anderlecht - to take on the role of player/manager. Vincent Kompany made headlines this weekend after he was involved in a rather interesting incident during the game against Belgian giants - Club Brugge.

“What a legend he [Aguero] is.
You take away the fact he’s scored that many, I’m grateful for one. When he scored against QPR and everyone said ‘Agueroooo’, you take that goal in isolation and he is always a legend to me...”#MCFC pic.twitter.com/EZfuUHgePJ

In the classic match between Anderlecht and Club Brugge, Simon Mignolet was subjected to a nasty welcome from the home fans. The Belgian national goalkeeper saw a bomb tossed in front of him during the match. If that wasn't enough, the small device ended up exploding close to him which undoubtedly took Vincent Kompany by surprise. The Anderlecht captain was visibly disturbed by the incident and went on to have a passionate word with the home crowd. The Manchester City legend was seen passionately speaking to those in the stands while trying to get his point across before putting an arm around Simon Mignolet.
