OFFICIAL: Manchester City Legend Vincent Kompany appointed new Burnley manager

Burnley have confirmed the appointment of former Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany as their new first-team manager.

The Clarets made the controversial decision to part ways with Sean Dyche towards the end of last season, and while caretaker boss Mike Jackson did well in his short time in charge, he was unable to lead them to Premier League safety.

Jackson has now stepped down from his role, with Kompany leaving his post at Anderlecht for a return to the country in which he spent 11 years with City between 2008 and 2019.

“Burnley Football Club is a truly historic English side and it is an honour to be appointed first-team manager,” said Kompany. “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.
