Kompany made the announcement shortly after Manchester City 6-0 FA Cup final triumph over Watford.

“As overwhelming as it is, the time has come for me to go. And what a season to bow out.’’

“I feel nothing but gratefulness. I am grateful to all those who supported me on a special journey, at a very special club. I remember the first day, as clear as I see the last. I remember the boundless kindness I received from the people of Manchester.’’ He told City’s website.

“I will never forget how all Man City supporters remained loyal to me in good times and especially bad times. Against the odds you have always backed me and inspired me to never give up.”

He has been very pivotal for City this season helping them achieve a domestic treble this season and making 24 appearances in all competitions and scoring one goal.

Kompany is set to be given a player-manager role at Belgian giants Anderlecht after calling time on his 11-year spell at Manchester City.
