Vincent Kompany, a legend of Manchester City, is eager to get started as Burnley’s new manager.

The 36-year-old Belgian replaces interim manager Mike Jackson, who just failed to keep the Clarets in the Premier League after Sean Dyche’s dismissal last season.

Kompany said: “It is an honour to be named manager of the first team for Burnley, a truly historic English club. I’m excited about the upcoming challenge.

“When we return to Turf Moor, I look forward to working with the players and building a great, winning team for our fans.

“The board’s vision for the club, which fits with mine, has impressed me, and I look forward to contributing as we enter a crucial season.”

Since April, when Dyche was dismissed, Burnley has been looking for a new manager.

Jackson kept them in with a chance to avoid relegation until the final day of the season, when a home loss to Newcastle relegated the Clarets to the Championship.

Last month, Kompany resigned from his position as head coach at Anderlecht following two years and a third-place result in the Belgian First Division A.

He returns to the Premier League after 11 years as a player at City, including eight years as club captain.

During his career with the Citizens, Kompany won ten major titles, including four Premier League crowns.

Alan Pace, chairman of Burnley, added: “We are thrilled to have Vincent join us in Burnley.

“I’ve been really impressed by his ideas for Burnley, his desire to achieve, and his determination to take the club back to the Premier League.

Last season, Vincent led one of Belgium’s largest teams back to European football and to a cup final, and we have been impressed by his philosophy, attitude, and vision for the club.

At Turf Moor, Kompany is expected to supervise a summer of upheaval.

The Clarets recently announced the release of fourteen players, including James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, and Erik Pieters, all of whom were first-team regulars.
