Vincent Kompany leaves Anderlecht as Burnley links grow


Could Vincent Kompany be managing in England?

Former Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany has left his role as Anderlecht boss, with links growing surrounding a possible switch to Burnley.

Over the weekend, Burnley were relegated from the Premier League, losing 2-1 at home to Newcastle United as Leeds United kept their place in the Premier League.

As part of their rebuild, it has been suggested that they have identified Kompany as the man to help steer them back to the top-flight.

“I am proud that I was able to start this new chapter at the club of my heart..”

In a statement issued today, Anderlecht confirmed that they have parted ways with their manager.

“The club and the coach have analysed the past season and discussed the plans for the future,” a statement read. “The two parties have decided to part ways in mutual consent.

“This decision was taken with a lot of mutual respect and gratitude for everything that has been achieved together. The club wishes Vincent Kompany all the best in his further career as a coach.

“He was, is and will remain an icon of the club and will always find a home at Royal Sporting Club Anderlecht.”

Kompany also spoke on his exit, reflecting on his stint at the club before his confirmed departure from the Belgian giants.

“Today only one feeling prevails: I am proud that I was able to start this new chapter at the club of my heart,” he added. “I have now been a player and a coach of RSC Anderlecht, but above all I remain a loyal fan.”
