Bayern Munich set to appoint Kompany as new head coach

In a big move, Bayern Munich has reached a deal with Vincent Kompany to make him their new head coach. Kompany, who is currently the manager of Burnley, will replace Thomas Tuchel after a long search by Bayern.

Kompany will lead Bayern Munich until 2027, and Bayern will pay Burnley £10.2 million for his release. Unlike Kompany, his assistant at Burnley, Craig Bellamy, won’t be joining him. Instead, Floribert Ngalula and Bram Geers will be part of his coaching team at Bayern.

Bayern considered several top candidates, including Bayer Leverkusen’s Xabi Alonso, former manager Julian Nagelsmann, and Austria’s Ralf Rangnick. But they all turned down the job. Kompany, who speaks German from his time playing at Hamburg, was a perfect fit.

At 38, Kompany has already made a name for himself as a coach. After winning four Premier League titles with Manchester City, he started his coaching career at Anderlecht and then moved to Burnley, where he won the Championship title in 2023. However, Burnley was relegated from the Premier League this season.

Bayern Munich is excited for this new chapter and hopes Kompany’s leadership will bring success and stability to the team.
