Vincent Kompany appointed new Burnley manager.


Burnley have appointed Vincent Kompany as their new manager after the Belgian left his role as Anderlecht boss.

Burnley had been in talks with former Manchester City captain Kompany regarding their managerial position, following the exit of long-serving boss Sean Dyche in April.

Mike Jackson took over as the caretaker manager but was unable to keep the club in the Premier League, with a 2-1 final-day defeat at home to Newcastle sending the Clarets to relegation to the Championship.

The Former Manchester City captain accepted the challenge saying it’s an honor to be appointed first team manager as Burnley is a true historic English side.

Kompany quit as head coach at Anderlecht, where he spent three years, in late May having finished third in the Belgian First Division A last season.
