Will Kim Min-jae (28, Bayern Munich) be smiling under a new manager?

“Munich, who are looking for a manager for next season, have reached a verbal agreement with Burnley boss Vincent Kompany (38),” Sky Sports in Germany reported on June 22.

The young manager, born in 1986, was a center back in the history of Manchester City (Man City) during his playing days. As captain, he won 12 titles with City, including four Premier League titles (2011-2012, 2013-2014, 2017-2018, 2018-2019).

Kompany retired from his hometown club RSC Anderlecht in 2020. He joined the club in 2019 as both a player and manager before taking over at Burnley in 2022.

As a coach, Kompany proved to be just as capable. He led Burnley to the Championship (second division) title in the 2022-2023 season. 토토사이트 He promoted the team to the Premier League. In one year, he won the Manager of the Month award four times.

In the Premier League, Kompany used the same high-pressing and aggressive tactics that he used in the Championship, but he reached his limit. The bar was high in the Premier League. Burnley finished the 2023-2024 season in 19th place with 24 points (W5 D9 L24) and suffered relegation after just one season.

It would be a risky signing, according to the Daily Mail.

It called it a “gamble” for Kompany’s Burnley to sign with Munich, citing the fact that Kompany’s Burnley failed to avoid relegation to the Premier League’s second tier this season, while Munich have not been linked to Kompany in 12 years.

It also explained that Kompany’s departure would be devastating for Burnley. “Burnley have been relegated to the second tier and have been forced to sell several players,” said the Daily Mail. Add to that the rumors of Kompany’s departure to Munich and the mood is not good.”

Nevertheless, 사설 토토사이트 Kompany and Munich have been linked. “Kompany also wants to become the new Munich manager and is confident of the challenge,” Sky Sports explained. The source went on to say that a deal could be finalized this week.

Could Kompany be the man to save Kim Min-jae, who has been reduced to a backup role since the middle of the season?

After signing for the ‘German giants’ from Napoli in the Italian Serie A just before the start of the season, Kim quickly became a regular starter, starting 16 games in a row from the start. Although he showed some signs of distraction with his constant appearances, Kim was still the number one center back for Munich.

However, after being sent to the Asian Cup in January, things changed dramatically. With Kim unavailable for a while, Munich brought in Tottenham’s Eric Dier in the winter transfer window, and the ‘stone that rolled in’ steadily pushed Kim out of the way to finish the season.

After his first season in Munich, Kim vowed to do better next season.

“It was an unsatisfactory season,” he said in an interview with Germany’s ‘T-Online’ on the 20th, “I need to improve next season. As a player, you always think a lot after the season ends. What did I do right, what was lacking, what was needed. It’s more important to learn from your mistakes. As an athlete, you need to reflect on everything in order to be able to compete at a high level. I will be even stronger next season,” he said encouragingly.

For Kim Min-jae, 토토사이트 추천 Kompany’s appointment could be a great opportunity. Kompany’s emphasis on a high defensive line and aggressive pressing is a tactical style that suits Kim well.
