OTHER On September 11, Manchester City is organizing a gala game to say goodbye to Vincent Kompany. A team with Kompany and former teammates will compete against an all-starr team from the Premier League.
With Samir Nasri and Craig Bellamy (U21 coach), Kompany takes two buddies from Anderlecht with him. Joe Hart, Joleon Lescott, Micah Richards, Pablo Zabaleta, Wayne Bridge, Gareth Barry, Nigel de Jong, Shaun Wright-Phillips and Stephen Ireland will also be present.
Among the opponents Emile Heskey and Rafael van der Vaart will play. The other names of that team are not yet known.
The proceeds of the game go to Tackle4MCR, an organization that helps homeless people in Manchester and was founded by Kompany and Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham.
