Returning to Anderlecht has been hismost fervent yet rational choice – however Vincent Kompanys start to life because player-manager hasnt gone to plan.
Former Anderlecht manager Frank Vercauteren has been appointed head coach on Thursday in an attempt to curb the gloomy form that was ancient of the club.
Technical director Frank Arnesen has left the club, while Simon Davies falls back to the role of trainer.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Lives Euro Leagues podcast, Belgian soccer journalist Kristof Terreur contested whether Kompany had made the right choice.
Kompany remains god in Anderlecht – that he cant do anything wrong but if you keep losing you get issues, said Terreur.
Something is happening. Should they shed on Friday Im not sure what will occur. Kompany still believes he enjoys challenges and hes a player. I believe this might be a error.
The team needed to bring someone else in his backroom staff, someone more experienced than Simon Davies – hes a yes guy who really understands what he believes is right for the group. Hes been really boring at media conferences at one point there was only 1 journalist at his press conference because everyone had given up listening – that is whats occurred because Kompany isnt doing press conferences.
