Vincent Kompany signs new five-year contract with Burnley

Burnley manager Vincent Kompany has signed a new deal with the club, extending his contract until 2028.

The 37-year-old was appointed by the Clarets last summer after leaving Anderlecht.

Kompany led Burnley to promotion with a win against Middlesbrough last month.

Burnley have lost only three games this season, racking up 98 points with one game left.

They have scored the most goals (84) and conceded the least (35) en route to booking promotion back to the Premier League.

Kompany said (via Burnley’s official website): “Burnley and Turf Moor felt right pretty much from the start – so it also feels right to sign for the next five years.

“Together with the fans, we have made Turf Moor a fortress again and continue to look forward to the future and the job of making Burnley better with every step.”

Burnley Chairman Alan Pace added: “We are ecstatic Vincent has signed a new deal! He is the perfect fit for how we all see Burnley Football Club moving forward.

“An extraordinary leader, setting ever higher standards and driving our club to the levels we all want to achieve.”

Kompany’s new deal has ended any chance Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea had of appointing him as their manager.

The London clubs shortlisted the Belgian as they sought to fill their vacant managerial roles.

However, they will now have to look elsewhere. The Blues are in advanced talks with Mauricio Pochettino, while Spurs are pushing for Julian Nagelsmann.
