Francois Kompany wants to play for Democratic Republic of Congo

Belgium might have Vincent Kompany as their skipper, but his younger brother Francois says he wants to play for the Democratic Republic of Congo -- the country where the siblings' father hails from.

In contrast to his brother, who has visited the DRC on social projects and received a resounding welcome, the younger Kompany has never been to the Central African nation.

However, the 27-year-old did represent a Congolese youth team in a training match at Beveren in Belgium.

He's now hoping he might get a call-up for the Leopards' African Nations Cup qualifier against neighbours Congo-Brazzaville next month.

Asked for his reaction, their father Pierre Kompany told journalists: "For me it doesn't matter which country Francois plays for. Vincent never asked me for permission to play for Belgium. I remain a proud father of both of them." 

This season, the younger Kompany, a left full-back, has helped Roeselare into the playoffs for promotion to the top flight in Belgium, while Vincent recently returned to action after a litany of injuries and is playing again for Manchester City after missing Belgium's European Championship campaign in 2016.
