Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is poised to invest in a lower league Belgian team.

The defender is ready to pump €250,000 into the Brussels-based Division 3B team Bleid-Molenbeek, who have been looking for investors.

Kompany’s father, Pierre Kompany, has confirmed the news, telling Belgian daily Sudpresse that his son is in demand: "Many clubs are looking for Vincent to come to their aid.

"Bleid, in part, it is true. My son is to develop a social project, allowing students to pursue quality education while playing football at a good level."


Former Belgium defender Michel De Wolf, who represented his country at three World Cups, serves as the sporting director at Bleid-Molenbeek.

The side have not enjoyed the best of seasons so far and currently sit 17th out of 19 teams in Division 3B.

After 17 games, Bleid-Molenbeek have just ten points.

Investment from Manchester City star Kompany will provide the whole club with a boost.
