Burnley appointed former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany as their new manager after he left his role as Anderlecht’s boss. The club has been in contact with Burnley ever since parting company with Sean Dyche. Mike Jackson was appointed as the interim manager but was unable to help keep the club in the Premier League as they lost 2-1 to Newcastle on the final day of the season. Kompany quit as the head coach of Anderlecht after spending three years at the club.

“Burnley is a truly historic English side and it is an honor to be appointed first-team manager. I’m excited about the challenge ahead. 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,” new Burnley boss Vincent Kompany said. “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.”

“We are absolutely delighted to welcome Vincent to Burnley. Vincent is a proven leader and I’ve been very impressed with his ideas for Burnley, his appetite to succeed, and his focus on leading the club back to the Premier League,” chairman Alan Pace said. “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.”
