Kompany's commitment to a style of play akin to Guardiola's City template has come in for criticism but Davies insists Anderlecht will not divert from their chosen path because of poor results.

The former Manchester City captain, who won 10 trophies at Etihad Stadium, will take over the armband from former City team-mate Samir Nasri.

Kompany was given the position following one of the most disappointing campaigns in Anderlecht's recent history.

Now Kompany has chose to take drastic action, by allowing himself to fully focus on the playing side of things while placing extra responsibility on Davies in a coaching capacity.

After discussions with his second in command, Kompany has agreed with former Manchester United man Davies how things will work going forward.

It was launched from Russia's Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Thursday and is set to arrive at the station on Saturday. The Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft was scheduled to dock with the station's Poisk module at about 1:30 a.m.

"Kompany must be more a player during the match", Davies said about the decision, quoted by Sky Sports. "He's going to lead the team and really concentrate on being a player on matchday".

A team of City legends will take on an all-star XI, managed by Kompany's global manager Roberto Martinez, and it will have a strong Old Trafford flavour to it, as City confirmed the involvement of as many as ten former United stars. But it's important he's a player on match day.

'So, together with my staff, I will take on the tactics next to the field. I take that on me'.

Wales manager Ryan Giggs has expressed his concern about captain Ashley Williams' match sharpness, with the 34-year-old left out of the squad for the next two games, and Lawrence being absent from the previous four league games won't help the situation.

The Belgian gives up his duties after four league games, from which the team only managed to collect just two points, and will instead focus on leading his side on the field.
