Not merely satisfied playing a large amount of games for club and country each season, Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has bought struggling third division Belgian side FC Bleid, as reported by The Daily Mail

The Manchester City captain has begun his bid to make his mark on the club by starting up new website 'westartfromscratch.com' asking fans to suggest a new name for the club.

The former Anderlecht man has also stated he will offer trusted football friends and his sister roles at the club in a bid to change the fortunes of the outfit. 

On the site created by Kompany, he said: "I need my time and focus in Manchester and with the Belgian National team. 

"The Brussels story is going to be well written by a team of professional staff under my sister. 

"They know me through and through and can put my vision into practice."

FC Bleid - founded in 1986, the same year their new owner was born - are currently sat at the bottom of the third division in Belgium having been crippled by financial difficulty. 

However, fans can now remain fairly optimistic with the thought that their club is now owned by one of the best defenders in world football. 

Kompany continued by saying: "This project has to be more than a club where its members simply kick a ball around. 

"The club has to be carried by the fans, the present and future ones. They have to become the beating heart of the club.

"And we don't have time to wait. I'm giving a call to arms for everyone: let's start thinking today of a name for the club."

Hopefully the side will find future success under the influence of one of their countries most decorated stars.
