Vincent Kompany: Burnley will embrace Premier League


Burnley’s manager, Vincent Kompany, claims that his team has no fear of the Premier League after securing promotion with seven games left.

An immediate return to the top level was ensured with a 2-1 Championship victory against Middlesbrough on Friday.

“No need to be ready right away. There are still three months left in April, so we still have time to get everything ready “Kompany stated.

“We aim to contend. We shouldn’t be afraid of it, in my opinion. We’ll accept it.”

To win the championship, Burnley needs 11 points from their next seven games, and 13 points will make them the first Championship team to reach 100 since Leicester City in 2013–14.

Although we are still missing the trophy, Kompany added, “We still don’t have the silverware, but we have made memories,”.

“We have already passed one significant milestone and won a victory that cannot be reversed.

“I am really thrilled for the club and for all of the participants. This is unique. Even if we haven’t yet won the trophy, I still have to think that will be the best moment.

After six seasons in the top division, Burnley was demoted last year, which resulted in the departure of numerous key players.

Relegation meant that they would have to pay back a “significant proportion” of the £65 million loan from the American financial institution MSD Holdings, which the club’s owners had obtained to buy the team.

Alan Pace, the chairman, described the promotion as a “complete surprise”

He said to Sky Sports, “This was not our plan,” “I discussed it with Vincent throughout the summer. We set aside two or three years for ourselves.
