While on his player-manager role, he stepped down from the managerial side and focused on playing after Anderlecht suffered their worst start to a season since 1998-99.

Frank Vercauteren took over as head coach, but reportedly had a fallout with Kompany with the two not sharing the same vision for the club.

Vercauteren has now left Anderlecht, and Kompany has been made the full-time manager of the Belgian side.
