Manager Bio

Vincent Kompany was manager of Burnley from 14 June 2022 to 29 May 2024.

Before going into management, Kompany enjoyed a hugely successful playing career as a centre-back which began with Anderlecht, before a two-year spell at Bundesliga club Hamburger SV.

His introduction to English football came in 2008 when he moved to Manchester City, where he would remain for the next 11 years, becoming captain and lifting the Premier League Trophy four times. 

He made a habit of scoring decisive goals, including a crucial winner against title rivals Manchester United in April 2012 and a wonder strike versus Leicester in the penultimate match of 2018/19.

Such was Kompany's influence, the club erected a statue of him in August 2021. A year later, he was inducted into the 2022 Premier League Hall of Fame.

Kompany's first managerial post was at Anderlecht in Belgium, where he spent two seasons, guiding the club to fourth and third-place finishes. He then took charge of Burnley in the summer of 2022.

In his debut season, he guided the Clarets back to the top flight at the first attempt as winners of the Championship with 101 points, the first club to break the 100-point barrier since Leicester City in 2013/14.

The 2023/24 Premier League campaign proved disappointing, however, and Burnley were relegated in 19th spot. Kompany departed soon after the end of the season, taking charge of Bayern Munich.
