Manager Bio

Vincent Kompany was appointed manager of Burnley on 14 June 2022.

Kompany joined Burnley from Anderlecht after spending two seasons with the Belgian side in his first managerial post.

He guided Anderlecht to fourth and third-place finishes before taking up the post at Turf Moor.

In his debut season in charge of Burnley, he guided them 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.

Before going into management, Kompany enjoyed a hugely successful playing career 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.

During that time, Kompany made the centre-back spot his own and eventually became captain, lifting the Premier League Trophy four times. 

He also 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 their 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.
