Vincent Kompany is set to take over at Bayern Munich

‘Novice coach’ and ‘world-class center back’ Vincent Kompany (38) is set to take over at Bayern Munich.

“Bayern Munich is ready to appoint Vincent Kompany as the successor to Thomas Tuchel (51),” German and British newspapers including Sky Sports, The Guardian, and The Athletic reported on Wednesday.

The Bavarians have world-class players in both attack and defense with the signings of Kim Min-Jae and Harry Kane for the 2023-2024 season. Thomas Tuchel, who took over midway through last season, had his ‘dream players’ and with them he challenged for a 12th consecutive Bundesliga title.

The result was irrelevant. Bayern Munich conceded the Meisterschaft (Bundesliga trophy) early on to Bayer 04 Leverkusen, who went on to win the title unbeaten.

In addition to the league, 카지노사이트 they were also eliminated early in the domestic cup competition, the DFB-Pokal. The Bavarians were beaten 0-3 by RB Leipzig in the DFL-Supercup and were eliminated 1-2 by third-tier club 1. FC Saarbrücken in the Pokal.

In the UEFA Champions League,

The only trophy they were still competing for, they lost to Real Madrid in the semifinals and ended the season without a trophy. It’s been 11 years since they’ve been in the competition. In addition, the club finished third in the league for the first time since the 2010-2011 season, losing out to VfB Stuttgart in the league standings.

On February 21, Munich announced on the club’s official website that “Thomas Tuchel will stay with the club until this summer. His contract was initially until June 2025. However, we have mutually agreed to terminate the contract in June 2024,” the club announced.

Munich need to find a coach for next season immediately, but it’s not going to be easy. Julian Nagelsmann and Ralf Rangnick have extended their contracts with the German and Austrian national teams, respectively, and Leverkusen coach Xabi Alonso has spoken to the club himself about taking the reins next season.

With Hanji Flick and Roberto De Zerbi both rejecting the club, Munich have also approached Burnley manager Vincent Kompany. “Bayern Munich are in talks with Manchester City legend Kompany,” Sky Sports reported on April 21.

The young manager, born in 1986, is an integral part of City’s history as a center back.

As captain, he won 12 titles with City, including four Premier League titles (2011-2012, 2013-2014, 2017-2018, 2018-2019).

He is considered one of the best center backs in the Premier League, despite his all-too-frequent injuries. Whenever he was on the pitch, he was a force to be reckoned with. His physicality has been compared to Nemanja Vidic at the height of his Manchester United career, and he also plays intelligently, with good judgment, good passing, and anticipating the movement of attackers and the path of passes.

As mentioned earlier, he suffered from frequent injuries, but he won the Premier League Player of the Season in 2011-2012 and was named to the PFA Team of the Year in 2010-2011, 2011-2012, and 2013-2014. He left the club after winning the league title in the 2018-2019 season, completing a beautiful farewell.

Kompany means so much to City that they have a statue of him on the east side of the Etihad Stadium.

Kompany retired from his hometown club RSC Anderlecht in 2020. After playing and managing for the club in 2019, he moved to England in 2022 to take charge of Burnley FC.

Kompany is also a talented coach.

He led Burnley to the Championship (second division) title in the 2022-2023 season and won four Manager of the Month awards in one year.

The ambitious Kompany brought the same high-pressing, aggressive tactics he used in the Championship to the Premier League, but he reached his limit. The barriers in the Premier League were high, and Burnley finished the season in 19th place with 24 points (5 wins, 9 draws, and 24 losses) and were relegated after just one season.

Burnley’s intentions were clear. They wanted to change the team’s basic style of play while still having faith in Kompany, who plays attacking soccer. Their intention was to move away from ‘passive defensive soccer’, even if it meant relegation.

Despite Burnley’s declaration of change, Bayern Munich have made a bid for Kompany.

According to Sky Sports’ Florian Platenberg, “Bayern Munich are considering appointing Kompany after numerous failed managerial appointments. The Bavarians have already contacted Kompany and are in early talks with him.”

“At Burnley, Kompany favored a 4-2-3-1 formation, a tactic Munich used to great success. His contract runs until 2028.” “Kompany played for City for more than a decade, starting in 2008, during which time he was tutored by Pep Guardiola,” the report added. 에볼루션 바카라사이트 Kompany is also positive about his arrival in Munich.

For Kim Min-jae, it’s a big variable. The fact that Kompany is a novice coach certainly adds to the uncertainty. However, Kompany’s attacking style of play suits Kim well, and he was a world-class defender in his playing days, so there is a lot to learn from him defensively.

Meanwhile, Kompany’s arrival at Bayern Munich seems like only a matter of time. “Kompany and Munich are holding concrete and positive discussions,” Sky Sports reported.
