Bayern Munich Appoints Vincent Kompany as New Manager

Posted : 30 May 2024

Bayern Munich have appointed Vincent Kompany as their new manager, finalizing his move from Burnley. The clubs announced the deal, with report that Bayern agreed to pay £10 million ($12.7 million) for Kompany, who will replace Thomas Tuchel despite Burnley's recent relegation from the Premier League.


The appointment marks the end of a turbulent recruitment process for Bayern, who initially announced in February that Tuchel would leave at the season's end. Kompany expressed his excitement about the role, calling it an honor to work for such a prestigious club. Bayern's sporting director, Max Eberl, praised Kompany's enthusiasm and leadership qualities, both as a former top international player and now as a coach.


Bayern had considered other candidates, including Bayer Leverkusen's Xabi Alonso and former manager Julian Nagelsmann, but both opted to remain with their current teams. Ex-Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick also turned down Bayern, choosing to continue as Austria's head coach. Despite reports of a potential reversal on Tuchel's departure, he confirmed his final match in charge before the season's end.


Kompany's appointment comes after a challenging season for Bayern, who lost their 11-season Bundesliga title streak to Leverkusen, exited the DFB Pokal in the second round, and were eliminated from the Champions League semifinals by Real Madrid. Despite his limited managerial experience and Burnley's struggles, Bayern hope Kompany can replicate the success he achieved in leading Burnley to promotion in his first season and bring renewed vigor to the club.
