All of us here at Digital Sports Group are proud we've had the opportunity to work with The PFA to give the fans a fantastic and unique fan resource for Vincent Kompany .
(PRWEB UK) 30 November 2012
Digital Sports Group today announced that The PFA Facebook fan page of Vincent Kompany has broken the 25% daily growth barrier making it the fastest growing Vincent Kompany page on Facebook. The Facebook page has become a thriving hub for the Manchester City defender since it's launch and now boasts a vibrant and rapidly growing community of fans. The Facebook page along with Vincent Kompany player profile on football.co.uk provide the only online location of the official PFA biography, lifetime stats, news and high resolution gallery.
Multilingual and multi-talented, Vincent was runner-up in the Blues fans’ Player of the Season poll for 2008/09 then really came into his own in 2009/10, switching from midfield to his international position of centre-half with aplomb. Equally at home as a central defender or defensive midfielder, the Belgian international regular joined City from Bundesliga side Hamburg SV in August 2008 for a fee of around £6million.He was Mark Hughes' third signing and made a hugely impressive debut in August's 3-0 victory over West Ham United. Before becoming a full international he represented his country at Under 17, 18 and 21 levels, and played at the Beijing Olympics.
Kompany began his professional career in his homeland with Anderlecht in the 2003/04 season and almost immediately attracted interest from across Europe for his composed performances in the Champions League. He eventually moved to Germany and signed for Bundesliga giants Hamburg SV in 2006, but injuries restricted him to just 39 appearances.
His comfort in two positions proved to be a bonus for City as injuries and suspensions bit into the squad over a gruelling 2008-09 season. Playing with a toe injury for some of the time he was one of only five Blues players to start more than 30 Premier League games. The toe problem became serious enough to warrant an operation in the summer of 2009, which forced Vincent out of the reckoning until the autumn. Despite this setback and the presence of several new signings, some outstanding performances in both midfield and central defence persuaded first Mark Hughes and then Roberto Mancini to make him a regular starter.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Vincent Kompany really has no shortage of fans after his performances for Manchester City and Belguim this season and we can see that by the success of his PFA Facebook page.”
“All of us here at Digital Sports Group are proud we've had the opportunity to work with The PFA to give the fans a fantastic and unique fan resource for Vincent Kompany .”
DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player Profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site football.co.uk.
