Vincent Kompany’s Father Becomes first black mayor in Belgium

Pierre Kompany, the father of Manchester City captain and Belgian international defender Vincent, became Belgium’s first black elected mayor on Monday after his party topped the poll in the Brussels suburb Ganshoren.

Pierre Kompany

Pierre Kompany, 71, arrived in Belgium in 1975 as a refugee from what was then Zaire, now the Democratic Republic of Congo, and has since been naturalised as a citizen and entered politics.

He was head of the centrist CDH list in Sunday’s municipal election in Ganshoren, a bilingual French and Dutch speaking town of 25,000 just outside the Belgian capital, and will take office in December.

“He’s the first black mayor in Belgium,” Vincent declared on Instagram. “It has never happened before. It’s historic. We’re all delighted. Bravo to my father.”

In 2014, a local councillor of Congolese origin, Denis Liselele, served as temporary mayor in the Belgian town of Sambreville after the elected town leader was suspended during a court case.

Former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has blasted Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo over his move to Italian League champions Juventus.

The 33-year-old ended his nine year reign with Real Madrid after the 2018 FIFA World Cup and sealed a move to the Allianz Stadium to join the Old Lady in a deal around £99 million.

He has since then scored 14 goals and created five assists in 19 league matches, as Allegri’s men sit atop of the log with 53 points – nine points better than Napoli.

ESPN however reports that the former Manchester United forward believes Ronaldo could have gone to a more lower club and prove his quality there.

The 37-year-old insisted that the Portuguese star joined a team that has won the league title in the last six years.

“Cristiano Ronaldo calls it a challenge to go to a team already armed, that has been winning the Serie A,” Ibrahimovic told ESPNFC.

“Several years ago, why not go to a second division club to become the champion and take the team to the 1st. Bulls**t, going to Juve is no challenge. “

Ibrahimovic on the other hand joined Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy in 2018 and in his first year at the club scored 22 goals and six assists in 27 matches for the franchise.

That was after spending close to one and a half season at Manchester United where he scored 17 goals in 33 topflight matches, and also won the Europa and EFL Cup in his first season.
