Vincent Kompany, Burnley FC’s manager has agreed to a new five-year contract. He has agreed to stay at Turf Moor ahead of the club’s return to the Premier League.
After coming over from Belgian team Anderlecht last summer, Kompany has successfully guided the Clarets back to the Premier League.
Burnley were promoted to the Premier League with seven games to spare before winning the Championship title, and the 37-year-old’s success has led to offers from Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea.
The former Manchester City captain, however, has put an end to speculation about his immediate future by agreeing to stay in Lancashire until at least 2028.
According to Kompany, signing for the next five years at Burnley and Turf Moor felt right almost immediately.
“Together with the fans, we have made Turf Moor a fortress again, and we continue to look forward to the future and the job of making Burnley better with every step.”
“We are ecstatic Vincent has signed a new deal,” said Burnley chairman Alan Pace. He is the perfect match for how we all see Burnley Football Club’s future.
“An extraordinary leader, setting ever-higher standards and driving our club to the levels we all want to achieve.”
Burnley’s promotion season as champions comes to an end on Monday when they play Cardiff in front of a sell-out crowd at Turf Moor.
Kompany has been on the radar of Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur as they look for their next permanent manager.
Former club Manchester City has also identified him as a possible manager for the club in the future.
