Bundesliga Vincent Kompany leaves Burnley to succeed Thomas Tuchel at Bayern

Bayern Munich have named Vincent Kompany as their replacement for Thomas Tuchel in the head coaching role.

Kompany, 38, has signed a three-year deal through to 30 June 2027, after two seasons in England during which he took Burnley up to the Premier League and back down again to the Championship.

The former Belgium international defender is a German speaker following a two-year playing stint in the Bundesliga with Hamburg between 2006 and 2008.He replaces Tuchel, who agreed in February to leave the club by mutual consent at the end of the 2023/24 campaign.

“I’m looking forward to the challenge of FC Bayern,” Kompany said. “It’s a great honour to be able to work for this club – FC Bayern is an institution in international football.

“As a coach, you have to stand for what you are as a personality: I love having the ball, being creative – and we also have to be aggressive on the pitch and courageous. I’m now looking forward to the very basic things: working with the players, building a team. When the foundation is in place, success will follow.”
