FORMER Manchester City captain and Anderlecht manager Vincent Kompany has accused Club Brugge fans of racially abusing him and his players.

Kompany reported abuse was aimed at his side throughout the entirety of Sunday's 2-2 Belgian Super League draw.

In a statement after the game, Club Brugge said: "The club, it's supporters, staff, players, employees and board strongly condemn any form of racism.

"These individuals are not representative of the values and norms of our club."

Meanwhile Kompany told Eleven Sports: "I'm having a hard time with it, I will go home dismayed and disappointed.

"We are here with a lot of people who have given a lot from this country and who just come to play football."

Kompany's Anderlecht currently sit fourth in the Belgian Super League table after the draw.

Club Brugge meanwhile are second, six points off shock leaders Union Saint-Gilloise.
