How Guardiola convinced Bayern to sign Kompany

A German football giant, Bayern boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, has confirms that former Belgian national team captain and Burnley manager, Vincent Kompany, will be the new Bayern coach.

Rummenigge said that the choice of Kompany was made by the club’s director after receiving clear conviction from Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola.

The long-time chairman of the supervisory board of Bayern disclosed this during an interview with newsmen on Tuesday.

He explained: “Our sports director has decided on Kompany, it is not official yet, only the final details need to be clarified.

The 68-year-old football expert revealed that a Bayern former coach was also involved in the deal that brought Kompany to Bavaria.

“It was Guardiola who recommended the choice. He did us a great favour. He had him as captain at City and also followed him when he was at Burnley. Pep knows Vincent well and his opinion is very highly regarded by us.”

As gathered, the club will present Kompany as the new coach on Wednesday. He will receive a contract until 2027.

Sources added that Kompany’s contract in Burnley would have run until 2028. But due to Bayern request, the Belgian will leave to join Bayern that will therefore pay a transfer fee of €10 million to €12 million euros.

For the Munich team, the signing of the former Belgian international would bring to an end a long search that the public was able to follow in detail. After the announced separation from Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season, Leverkusen coach Xabi Alonso said,

The national team coach, Julian Nagelsmann and Austrian national coach, Ralf Rangnick, were absent. Former Frankfurt coach Oliver Glasner was also not signed. Roger Schmidt from Benfica Lisbon also declined, and recent efforts to keep Tuchel on had also failed.
