Vincent Kompany is closer to be the new manager at Bayern Munich.


Vincent Kompany is closer to be the new manager at Bayern Munich. Despite leading Burnley during a miserable season that saw them sent straight back to the Championship, Vincent Kompany has emerged as the unexpected front-runner for the Bayern Munich position. 

Bayern Munich is very close to signing Vincent Kompany as their next manager in an incredible deal. 

Burnley was immediately relegated after Kompany guided them to the Championship title, but he could not maintain the Clarets in the Premier League this season. The Belgian manager was criticized for tenaciously adhering to his vision of appealing football. 

His team was second bottom of the table after winning only five games and giving up 78 goals. Despite this, he has become the unexpected favourite to succeed Thomas Tuchel at Bundesliga powerhouse Bayern. 

After a dismal season in which they finished third in the German top division and lost to third-tier Saarbrucken in the second round of the DFB-Pokal, Tuchel has departed the team. 

Tuchel has stated he is unquestionably leaving despite hints that he might stay. Bayern has now turned to Kompany, and it is believed that negotiations are progressing. 

Alan Pace, the owner of Burnley, has already discussed pay with the Bayern executives. By the end of the week, an agreement to move Kompany to the Allianz Arena is hoped to be finalised. 

By letting Kompany go now, the Clarets will have more time to identify the ideal replacement. Next season, they want to contend for yet another promotion from the Championship.

Although Kompany taking on such a significant role may raise some eyebrows, there are indications that he has the potential to be very successful. Xabi Alonso and Ralf Rangnick have already turned Bayern down, and Kompany is a backup. 

Burnley’s relegation was already official prior to their Sunday loss to Nottingham Forest. Following the loss, Kompany insisted he was excited about the promotion challenge and offered no indication that he was thinking about his future. 

“We refuse to wallow in self-pity; the past is practically behind us, and we have a bright future ahead. We’re not quite ready for the Premier League yet, but we have a pretty good team,” he remarked. 

“However, in terms of the championship, they have an extremely talented team, and maybe they can return to the Premier League.” We don’t take anything for granted, as you witnessed when Forest celebrated on our turf at the conclusion. 

“The Championship is tough, but we will be celebrating on the pitch on the last day of the next season. These situations are never easy, but eventually, things end, and we have to depend on the ascent of new players.”
