Former skipper and a veteran player for current Premier League champions Manchester City, Vincent Kompany finds himself back into English football.
Kompany is set to manage Burnely as he is appointed as the new boss and as Dyche’s replacement.
The Belgium star was last seen in English football when he played a vital role for the Cityzens at the Etihad Stadium.
Kompany has told Burnley’s official website of returning to England: “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.”
Burnley chairman stated “Vincent is a proven leader and I’ve been very impressed with his ideas for Burnley Football Club, his appetite to succeed and his focus on leading the club back to the Premier League.
“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.”
