Bayern Munich have confirmed the appointment of Vincent Kompany as the club’s new manager. 

The Bundesliga side announced Kompany’s arrival in a statement on the club’s website on Wednesday.

The Belgian manager agreed to a deal that would see him at the Allianz Arena for three years.

“FC Bayern have confirmed Vincent Kompany as their new head coach. The 38-year-old has agreed to a contract with the German record champions through 30 June 2027. The former Belgium international most recently managed English Premier League club FC Burnley,” the statement read.

Managing the history-rich Bavarian team will be Kompany’s third job in his budding managerial career.

He had his first crack at management in 2020 when he became a player-manager at Anderlecht.

The former Manchester City captain then returned to England for a second time to handle Burnley for the 2022/23 season.

In his first campaign, he guided the Clarets to the EFL Championship title, earning them promotion to the English Premier League (EPL).

However, Burnley were relegated back to the Championship after just one season in the top flight.

Kompany replaces Thomas Tuchel, whose exit from the role was announced in February.

The club said both parties jointly decided to end their “working relationship” prematurely after a string of bad results that resulted in Bayern losing the Bundesliga title to Bayer Leverkusen.

Tuchel was, however, allowed to see through the 2023/243 season with the team.
