Vincent Kompany is still waiting for his first win as Anderlecht player-manager.

The 33-year-old left Manchester City to take over at the Belgian club earlier this summer.

But he has endured a tough start to life in management, losing to Oostende on the opening day of the season and drawing to Royal Excel Mouscron and Mechelen.

Kompany’s side could not find a way past Mechelen, despite the Belgian minnows playing the entire second-half with 10 men.

With Anderlecht scoring just once in three games, Kompany will be hoping new £6.4million signing Kemar Roofe adds more of a threat.

The striker ended his three-year spell with Leeds to link up with the Belgium captain.

Roofe paid tribute to Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa after leaving Elland Road.

“He helped me massively last season,” he said in an exclusive interview with talkSPORT host Jim White.

“Without his style of play and the footballing education he gave to us, I probably wouldn’t be in this position.

“I adapted to his style and I’ve changed a few things in my game that have improved, and these little things have been able to catch the eyes of other people, like Vincent Kompany.

“He likes the way I was playing last season, and he just wants me to continue and improve even more.”
