Vincent Kompany signs new five-year deal at Burnley

Burnley have rewarded manager Vincent Kompany with a new five-year contract.

The former Manchester City defender earned promotion back to the Premier League in his first season in the managerial dugout at Turf Moor, winning the league title in style.

He has been linked with a number of Premier League job offers, including Chelsea and Tottenham, but has now committed himself to the Clarets until 2028.

The Belgian said: “Burnley and Turf Moor felt right from the start – so it feels right to sign for the next five years.

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

Kompany replaced Sean Dyche last summer following the club’s relegation to the Championship and has changed his playing style after galloping to the league title.

The Clarets can earn 100 points – their highest score in the club’s 140-year history – if they beat Cardiff in the final game of the season on Monday.

Chairman Alan Pace added: “We are delighted that Vincent has signed a new contract.

“He fits perfectly with how we all envision Burnley Football Club progressing.

“An exceptional leader who is setting ever higher standards and elevating our club to the level we all aspire to be.”
