PETALING JAYA: Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany will be in town for the newly-crowned English Premier League champion’s ticket launch for their friendly match against the Malaysian XI.
The Belgian defender, who led City to their first English Premiership title in 44 years, will be the star attraction when ProEvents announce the ticket prices for the match at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil on July 30.
Kompany will be officiating the launch at the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) headquarters in Kelana Jaya on June 6. It will be the Belgian’s first visit to Malaysia.
“I have heard many good things about the country from some of my team-mates who have been there. They always rave about the warm and welcoming Malaysians and I’m looking forward to meeting our fans there,” he said.
The 26-year-old Kompany has become one of the best centrebacks in the world since pulling on the blue kit of City four years ago. He has gone on to make 127 appearances for the club.
The City skipper was an integral part of the team who won the FA Cup last year and the English Premier League last season.
