Bayern Munich Reach Agreement in Principle with Kompany

By Majesty 2 Min Read

Vincent Kompany, the manager of Burnley, has reached an agreement in principle to take over as coach of Bayern Munich. 

In their quest for a replacement for Thomas Tuchel, the German team made the decision to sign Kompany following a string of rejections. 

Kompany reportedly reached an agreement to sign a contract through 2027, with Bayern expected to reimburse Burnley with £10.2 million.

Kompany’s assistant at Burnley, Craig Bellamy, will not go to the Allianz Arena with the Belgian; instead, his backroom staff will consist of Floribert Ngalula and Bram Geers. 

After deciding to break ways with Tuchel, Bayern had recruited Austrian coach Ralf Rangnick, former manager Julian Nagelsmann of Bayern Munich, and coach Xabi Alonso of Bayer Leverkusen. All three of them turned down the position. 

Tuchel had discussions with Bayern earlier in May on staying with the team, but the talks broke down without a deal. After spending two years as a player for Hamburg, Kompany fits the bill for Bayern’s desire to name a German-speaking coach. 

The 38-year-old’s tenure at Burnley and Anderlecht has helped him establish a respectable managerial reputation. A four-time Premier League champion while playing for Manchester City, Kompany moved to Turf Moor in 2020 after serving as player-manager for a while. 

In 2020, he was appointed head coach of Anderlecht. Although Burnley won the Championship in 2023 under the Belgian’s leadership, the Clarets were demoted from the Premier League this year.
