Vincent Kompany has been named as Burnley’s new manager
Following Burnley’s relegation to the Championship, Vincent Kompany has been named the club’s new manager.
Since Sean Dyche was fired in April, the Clarets have been looking for a new permanent manager. Caretaker manager Mike Jackson has been in charge of the team through the remainder of the current campaign.
And Kompany, a former Belgian international defender, has been given the job of getting the team back into the Premier League.
Kompany is no stranger to the north west of England, having spent the majority of his playing career serving as captain of Manchester City.
At the conclusion of the 2018–19 season, the 36-year-old multiple Premier League champion left City and took over his childhood club Anderlecht, which he led to fourth and third place finishes in the Belgian First Division over the previous two seasons.
