Former Manchester City captain, Vincent Kompany, has said it is an honour for him to be appointed Burnley’s new manager.
Kompany was appointed as Burnley’s new manager at Turf Moor on Tuesday.
The English club made the announcement in a statement via its website on Tuesday.
Reacting to the appointment, Kompany told the club’s official website: “Burnley Football Club is a truly historic English side, and it is an honour to be appointed first-team manager.
“I’m excited by 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.
“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.”
Kompany left Belgian side Anderlecht last season and has now opted to take up a huge management job in the Championship after Burnley’s relegation from the Premier League in 2021-22,
The 36-year-old former defender will be tasked with immediate promotion.
He replaced Sean Dyche, who had been at Burnley for ten days before he was axed in the last campaign, with interim coach Mike Jackson unable to prevent their drop down to the Championship.
