Where and when to watch the Vincent Kompany Testimonial tonight
It’s former Man City captain (leader, legend) Vincent Kompany’s Testimonial match tonight and, in fitting fashion, the main man himself has been ruled out through injury. Which is a shame, because − whatever you may think of the club − Kompany was a truly brilliant captain. Tonight’s game will pit… other Man City legends, managed by Pep Guardiola, against a team of Premier League All-Stars, managed by Belgium coach Roberto Martinez. Our quick guide reveals all you need to know to tune in to tonight’s Vincent Kompany Testimonial.
