Club Brugge condemned supporters who allegedly abused former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany in Sunday’s game against Anderlecht.
Kompany, Anderlecht’s current head coach, was visibly upset after the 2-2 draw.
The 35-year-old said he, his players and staff were verbally assaulted throughout the game.
âI have a hard time with that,â Kompany told Eleven Sports. “I will go home dismayed and disappointed.”
He added: “We are here with a lot of people who have given a lot from this country and who come just to play football.”
Kompany, who won four Premier League titles with City before leaving in 2019 to join Anderlecht as player-manager, declined to speak to the wider media after the game and said he wanted to “go home, rest and spend time with people who are important tome “.
In response to Kompany’s comments, Club Brugge posted on Twitter: “The club, its supporters, staff, players, employees and board strongly condemn all forms of racism. These individuals are not representative of the values ââand standards of our club. “
In October, a Belgium-based Manchester City fan was assaulted on his way home from the Champions League meeting between City and Club Brugge.
