Why Burnley appointed Vincent Kompany as their new manager in Championship
Burnley appoints Vincent Kompany as their next manager.

After leaving his position as manager of Anderlecht, Burnley has selected Vincent Kompany as their next manager.


Burnley had been in contact with ex Manchester City captain Kompany about taking over as manager after parting ways with long-serving leader Sean Dyche in April.


Mike Jackson took over as caretaker manager but was unable to maintain the team in the Premier League, with a 2-1 loss at home to Newcastle on the penultimate day subjecting the Clarets to the Championship.


Since being rumoured with Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach, among others, Kompany has acknowledged to rejecting down other chances to take the job at Turf Moor because he believes a "great future."

With the club back in the Championship during the first time since 2015-16, when they returned to the top division at the first try, the former City defender has a big rebuilding project.


"I did have other proposals," he said to burnleyfootballclub.com.


"However, when I lay out all of the options on the table, some were probably more enticing in terms of name and what they would represent to the general public, but I had the opportunity to examine Burnley in great detail."


"I looked at what Burnley wanted to achieve and I'm not saying it's easy, but I saw a path which was different than that at other places.


"I see a plan and I see good people. I want to work with people that are already at Burnley, I'm allowed to bring good people with me as well, and together we don't have to change everything.


"To make a long answer short, I've chosen this project because I know that after a difficult start will come an incredible future."
