Kompany set to become Bayern Munich head coach


Burnley manager Vincent Kompany has reached an agreement in principle to become the new coach of Bayern Munich.

The German club pursued Kompany after facing rejections in their search for a successor to Thomas Tuchel.

Kompany has reportedly agreed to a deal until 2027, with Bayern set to pay Burnley £10.2m in compensation. However, his assistant at Burnley, Craig Bellamy, will not accompany him to the Allianz Arena. Instead, Floribert Ngalula and Bram Geers will be part of his backroom staff.

Bayern had initially targeted several coaches, including Bayer Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso and former manager Julian Nagelsmann, but faced rejection from all. Tuchel, who held talks with Bayern earlier in May, also failed to reach an agreement.

Kompany’s appointment meets Bayern’s preference for a German-speaking coach, as he has played for Hamburg during his career. The 38-year-old has gained recognition as a manager during his time at Anderlecht and Burnley.

As a four-time Premier League winner with Manchester City, Kompany transitioned into coaching, initially as player-manager at Anderlecht in 2020 before moving to Burnley. He guided Burnley to the Championship title in 2023 but was unable to prevent their relegation from the Premier League this season.
