Anderlecht have been fined by the Belgian FA for violating regulations around the appointment of Vincent Kompany as boss.

The former Man City captain left the Etihad at the end of last season to take up a player-manager role with his old club.

But Kompany is yet to complete his UEFA Pro licence – a requirement for all top flight managers in the Belgian league.

As a result his club have landed a 5,000 euros fine – the maximum that can be charged – as well as a strong reprimand for “insufficient respect for compliance with the regulations.”

“The club violated the regulations for a long time and despite that it being against the rules did not hesitate to publicly unveil a coach without a diploma,” the association’s licensing committee said in a statement, as reported by ESPN .

Anderlecht tried to argue that Simon Davies (L) was actually head coach over Kompany

Anderlecht tried to combat the charge by arguing that the head coach was actually Simon Davies, who was previously involved in the academy at Man City but left with Kompany to join him on his new venture.

The commission rubbished Anderlecht’s defence however, by producing evidence by way of the club’s own media statements and footage unveiling Kompany as their new boss to counteract their argument.

It is the latest issue in Kompany’s messy start to life back in Brussels, where he has led his team to just two wins out of a possible 10.

The club have since named Frank Vercautern, who has the Pro licence, as the new head coach, and have stated that he will replace Davies in the role, who will now be no.2.

They added that Vercautern will be in charge on matchdays, meaning Kompany is likely to be the boss for the remainder of the week.

Davies was believed to be handling first-team affairs during matches when Kompany was on the pitch, prior to the latest announcement.
