Kompany ‘top of Burnley’s wish-list’ as new boss – as long as Clarets survive

Former Manchester City star Vincent Kompany is top of Burnley's wish-list to become their boss should they survive the drop.

The Clarets parted way with former boss Sean Dyche last month, and they installed Mike Jackson as their interim boss until the end of the season. However, Burnley have been looking for a permanent boss, and the former Man City man could fit the bill.

According to Belgian outlet Het Laatste Nieuws, Burnley see that Kompany 'fits the profile of the modern manager'. And the Clarets owner Alan Pace has the Belgian 'at the top of his managerial wish-list' for the Burnley dugout.

Kompany retired from football in 2020 after a storied career in the blue half of Manchester.

On the same day Kompany retired, he was announced as the player-manager of Anderlecht – the club where he started his career. Kompany started life as player-manager, but is now the outright boss at the Belgian outfit.

Kompany initially had stepped back to being just a player after a disastrous spell in 2019, but in 2020 he moved back into a managerial role.

Kompany has yet to win a major honour at Anderlecht.

And Anderlecht are currently third in the 'Championship Round' of the Belgian top tier, but they are facing a losing battle behind Club Brugge and Royale Union Saint-Gilloise, who have put together something of a Leicester City fairytale this season.
