Burnley have appointed former Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany as its new manager to take over from Sean Dyche, the Championship club said on Tuesday.

“Burnley is a truly historic English side and it’s an honour to be appointed first-team manager,” said Kompany. “I’m excited by the challenge ahead.”

Dyche was sacked towards the end of last season before Mike Jackson took over as interim boss. However, he was unsuccessful in keeping the club in the top-flight Premier League.
