Vincent Kompany

EFL Championship side Burnley has appointed former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany as their new manager.

Kompany left Anderlecht in May after two years in charge and replaces Sean Dyche at Turf Moor, who was sacked in April.

“I’m excited by the challenge ahead,” the Belgian said following his appointment.

“I’m looking forward to getting to work with the players and creating a positive, winning team for our fans when we return to Turf Moor.”

“I’ve been impressed by the Board’s vision for the club which aligns with my own and I look forward to playing my part as we enter an important season.”

During his first full season as manager, Kompany led the club to a fourth-place finish overseeing a youthful squad with the youngest average age in the league.
