Vincent Kompany is top candidate to take over Premier League club

Premier League

Vincent Kompany has emerged a leading candidate to take over at Tottenham in the wake of Antonio Conte’s departure last week, according to reports.

Conte, who furiously criticised his players before the international break following Spurs’ disappointing 3-3 draw against relegation-threatened Southampton, left Tottenham by mutual consent last Sunday, leaving deputy Cristian Stellini in charge ahead of the team’s trip to Goodison Park this weekend.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has already made contact with sacked Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann, who made way for Thomas Tuchel at the Allianz Arena last week, while ex-Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has also been linked with the job.

Levy is also rumored to be interested in former Spain head coach Luis Enrique, Fulham manager Marco Silva, and Brentford manager Thomas Frank.

The Sun claims that Kompany, who wowed Levy during his outstanding season as Burnley’s manager, has emerged as the front-runner for the Tottenham position.

According to the publication, the Belgian is interested in taking over as manager of Tottenham after Conte leaves. This would be a significant step for the young manager, who only officially retired as a player in the summer of 2020.

In the race for automatic promotion back to the Premier League, the Clarets, who play Sunderland on Friday, have carved out a 13-point advantage at the top of the standings. By the next weekend, Kompany’s team can achieve promotion.

Despite losing players like Nick Pope, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, and Dwight McNeil last summer, the Manchester City icon was able to turn Burnley into a Championship squad that is chasing records.

Pep Guardiola declared that it is “written in the stars” that Vincent Kompany, 36, will eventually take over as Manchester City’s head coach after being impressed by what he has seen of the player during his coaching career thus far at Anderlecht and Burnley.

‘All of us here and the fans are thrilled (Kompany) will be returning,’ Guardiola said before his team’s 6-0 hammering of the Clarets in the FA Cup.

He will return at some point. His ascension to managing Manchester City is predetermined by the stars.

“It’s going to happen, I don’t know when, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to happen.”

It’s just how I feel; I could be mistaken. He possesses the qualities, the work ethic, the expertise, and the experience necessary to succeed.

“What he has done is so challenging, and he is succeeding brilliantly.” He is aware of the demands of our people, the club, and the surrounding environment. The future awaits.
