Bayern Munich signs the third most expensive coach in football history!

Sky Sports confirmed that Bayern Munich’s management had reached an agreement with its counterpart in Burnley to compensate it with a huge sum to let coach Vincent Kompany move to the Bavarian club.

Kompany was the last option that Bayern’s management settled on to succeed Thomas Tuchel, after a series of rejections suffered by the German club from a large number of senior coaches.

According to the latest report, Bayern will pay compensation worth up to 12 million euros to Burnley after arduous negotiations during which the English club wanted to obtain 20 million euros to leave Kompany.

Thus, the Belgian will join the list of the largest coach transfer deals in the history of football, and will now surpass the transfer of Arne Slott from Feyenoord to Liverpool, which cost the Reds 9 million euros.

Kompany became the third most expensive coach transfer deal from one club to another in history, after Julian Nagelsmann’s transfer from Leipzig to Bayern for 25 million euros, and Villas-Boas’ transfer from Porto to Chelsea for 15 million euros.

The strange thing is that Kompany has not achieved any notable achievements in his coaching career so far other than his success in promoting Burnley to the Premier League, then relegating them last season after achieving only 4 victories.

But there is belief within the Bavarian club that Kompany is a distinguished coach and can be relied upon to be “the new Xabi Alonso,” so he was signed to a 3-year contract.
