Manchester United fans wondered if Scholesy could come back from retirement as the Old Trafford legend threw back to his old days with a stunning pass in a match between Manchester City Legends and Premier League All-Stars at the Etihad Stadium.

A fixture arranged to pay tribute to the times Vincent Kompany had with City, the game had its fair share of Manchester United players as well with Paul Scholes pulling off a jaw-dropping piece of skill one just cannot stop watching.

“You can’t have a successful project without Manchester United involved”

Kompany enjoyed a glittering career at City after moving to Manchester from Hamburg in 2008. He won 10 major honours and left after helping them win the domestic treble last season.

All that was remembered as the club paid tribute at the game. City have also announced that the road that connects the youth and community pitches at their training complex will be renamed Vincent Kompany Cresent “in recognition of his unrivalled achievements and contribution to the club”. A mosaic of Kompany has also been erected and a sculpture is to follow.

For Kompany, though, the main priority from his testimonial was to raise money for his homelessness charity Tackle4MCR.

For that, he was pleased that so many old rivals – ex-Manchester United players such as Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Robin Van Persie and Michael Carrick – have offered to play as a City XI face a Premier League All Stars team.

Kompany said: “We are specifically dealing with homelessness in Greater Manchester. You can’t have a successful project without Manchester United involved. We have our differences – that is clear – but if we can get together for these sort of events the city is stronger.”

Other players set to feature include Thierry Henry and Cesc Fabregas, as well as a host of past and present City stars, including Silva and Aguero.
