Vincent Kompany has raided Manchester City for the final addition to his Anderlecht support staff with Simon Davies named head coach at the Belgian club.

The Welsh-born former Manchester United player leaves his post as City’s head of academy coaching to work alongside player-manager Kompany.

Davies stepped into his most recent role last year after succeeding Patrick Vieira in charge of the Elite Development Squad in 2016.

He also had a brief stint at Chester City in 2008 and arrives at Anderlecht on Kompany’s recommendation.

“When Vinny asked me to make the move with him to RSC Anderlecht, I didn’t doubt [him],” Davies said.

“We are starting a beautiful project: taking RSC Anderlecht back to the place where they belong, with special emphasis on the development of talented young players.”

Anderlecht sporting director Michael Verschueren added: “We hired him following Vincent Kompany’s advice.

“They have been working together for quite a while and we want to bring Manchester City’s success story to RSC Anderlecht.”

Davies forms part of a six-man coaching staff that will support Kompany in the outgoing City captain’s first managerial job.
