Vincent Kompany Set to Lead Bayern Munich as New Head Coach

Vincent Kompany Set to Become Bayern Munich's New Coach

Bayern Munich has reached an agreement in principle with Burnley manager Vincent Kompany to take over as their new head coach.

The German club turned to Kompany after experiencing multiple rejections in their search for a successor to Thomas Tuchel. It is understood that Kompany has agreed to a contract until 2027, with Bayern set to pay Burnley £10.2m in compensation.

Kompany’s assistant at Burnley, Craig Bellamy, will not join him at the Allianz Arena. However, Floribert Ngalula and Bram Geers will be part of his backroom staff in Munich.

Bayern had previously targeted Bayer Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso, their former manager Julian Nagelsmann (currently leading Germany), and Austria coach Ralf Rangnick. All three turned down the job.

Tuchel had talks with Bayern earlier in May about potentially staying on, but those discussions did not result in an agreement. Bayern was keen on appointing a German-speaking coach, and Kompany fits that requirement, having played for Hamburg for two years during his playing career.

At 38, Kompany has already built a solid reputation as a manager. After a successful playing career, which included winning the Premier League four times with Manchester City, he transitioned to management. Kompany began as Anderlecht’s head coach in 2020, following a period as their player-manager, before moving to Burnley.

The Belgian guided Burnley to the Championship title in 2023, but the Clarets were relegated from the Premier League this season.

Exciting times are ahead for Bayern Munich with Kompany at the helm, bringing his experience and leadership to one of Europe’s top clubs.
