Burnley Football Club’s boss, Vincent Kompany, has expressed his surprise at the club’s quick promotion to the Premier League. The former Manchester City player and manager took over as Burnley’s boss in November 2022, and has led the club to the top of the Championship table, securing their promotion to the top flight with six games to spare.
In an interview with Sky Sports, Kompany stated that he never dreamed of Burnley achieving promotion so soon after his appointment as manager. He credited the club’s success to the hard work and dedication of the players and staff, as well as the support of the fans.
Kompany also acknowledged that the step up to the Premier League will be a tough challenge, but he is confident that his team will rise to the occasion. He emphasized the importance of continuing to build on the club’s success, and maintaining the same level of commitment and effort that has led to their promotion.
Burnley’s promotion to the Premier League marks their return to the top flight after a two-year absence. The club has a proud history, having won two First Division titles and one FA Cup in their long and illustrious history.
Kompany’s appointment as manager was seen as a major coup for Burnley, with the Belgian international widely regarded as one of the best players of his generation. His experience and leadership have been instrumental in guiding the club to promotion, and his influence will undoubtedly be felt as they prepare for their return to the Premier League.
The Burnley faithful will be hoping that Kompany’s success as a player and manager at Manchester City will translate to his tenure at Turf Moor, and that he can lead the club to even greater heights in the years to come.
