Burnley chairman Alan Pace has given reasons why they handed Vincent Kompany the managerial role at the club.
The former Manchester City defender was named as the new boss for the Clarets on Tuesday as they seek to bounce back immediately to the Premier League and Pace pointed to the Belgian’s leadership qualities and credentials at Anderlecht as the main reasons why they gave him the job.
“We are absolutely delighted to welcome Vincent to Burnley Football Club. Vincent is a proven leader and I’ve been very impressed with his ideas for Burnley Football Club, his appetite to succeed, and his focus on leading the club back to the Premier League.
“Vincent has shown impressive credentials in leading one of Belgium’s biggest teams back to European football and a cup final last season and we’ve been excited by his philosophy, approach, and ambition for the club,” Pace said.
Kompany arrives to replace long-serving boss Sean Dyche who was sacked towards the end of last season due to a spate of poor results.
