Fans who allegedly racially assaulted former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany during Sunday’s game against Anderlecht have been denounced by Club Bruges.
After the 2-2 tie, Anderlecht’s current coach, Vincent Kompany, was obviously angry. Throughout the game, the 35-year-old claims he, his teammates, and his staff were verbally attacked.
Kompany told Eleven Sports, “I’m having a terrible time with it.” “I’ll be disheartened and disappointed when I get home.”
“We are here with a lot of individuals who have given a lot to this country and who have just come to play football,” he continued.
After the game, Kompany, who won four Premier League titles with City before joining Anderlecht as player-manager in 2019, refused to speak to the wider media, saying he wanted to “go home, recuperate, and spend time with those who are important to me.”
In response to Kompany’s remarks, Club Bruges issued the following statement on Twitter: “Any type of racism is firmly condemned by the club, its supporters, staff, players, employees, and board. Our club’s ideals and norms are not represented by these individuals.”
A Manchester City supporter from Belgium was attacked on his way home from a Champions League match between City and Club Bruges in October.
