Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho described former Manchester City centre-back Vincent Kompany as a legend and captain fantastic after Wednesday's testimonial game.

Several stars returned to the Etihad Stadium as Man City legends took on Premier League All-Stars in a memorial game in honour of the Belgian which ended in a 2-2 draw.

Kompany arrived in Manchester from Hamburger in 2008 and went on to spend 11 years at the club before leaving at the end of the 2018-19 season.

During his stay with the Citizens, the Belgium international won four Premier League titles, four League Cups and two FA Cups.

After Wednesday's match at the Etihad, Iheanacho who played alongside Kompany during his two-year stint at City, praised his former captain.

"Legend!! Congratulations on your testimonial tonight and all you’ve done with your charity, Tackle4MCR. Captain fantastic," Iheanacho wrote on Instagram.

Iheanacho, who has not played a match for Leicester City this season, was missing from international duty with Nigeria with no official reason.

The 22-year-old will be looking to break into Brendan Rodgers' team for their Premier League trip to Manchester United on Saturday.
