The Manchester City defender has teamed up with Andy Burnham, the mayor of Greater Manchester, to launch fundraising campaign Tackle4MCR.

Kompany said: “I’ve received much from Manchester – a great career at the highest level, unconditional support from the fans through thick and thin, a lovely family and so much more to be grateful for.

"Over the past decade I’ve been lucky to have witnessed and played a part in Manchester City’s rise as a club and a brand.

"This has also run parallel alongside the rise of a whole region.

"However, with this spectacular rise comes a very visible downside. More and more people are left out of and have no access to the benefi ts of the rapid development, often leaving them no choice but to end up on the streets.

"And this is why our mayor Andy Burnham and I have launched Tackle4MCR.”

The fundraising will culminate in his testimonial gala match at the end of the season.

Mr Burnham said he was “very proud” to link up with Kompany.
