Vincent Kompany and David Silva statues to be unveiled at Etihad

1 min read

Manchester City will this week unveil statues in honour of club legends Vincent Kompany and David Silva.

Former captain Kompany left the club in 2019 after 11 years, during which time he won the Premier League and League Cup four times and FA Cup twice. While Silva, who made 436 appearances for City, was widely regarded as one of the club’s greatest-ever players.

A third statue, in tribute to all-time leading goalscorer Sergio Aguero, who left the club at the end of last season after a decade-long association, will be unveiled in 2022.

The Kompany and Silva statues will be unveiled ahead of Saturday’s home against Arsenal.

“The decision to honour the three players was based on their unparalleled contribution to the club’s transformation over their combined 31 years at the club,” City said in a statement.

Khaldoon Al Mubarak, the club’s chairman, said: “Ultimately, Vincent and David do not need statues to enshrine their achievements at Manchester City over the past decade.

“They are already revered as icons of their generation.

“But what these artworks give us, and generations to come, is the opportunity to be reminded of, and savour, the truly magical moments created by both men.”

Silva and Aguero are currently with La Liga teams Real Sociedad and Barcelona respectively, while Kompany is the head coach of Belgian Pro League club Anderlecht.
