Vincent Kompany to Bayern: Bavarians reportedly hiring Man City legend to replace Thomas Tuchel

Following Thomas Tuchel's decision to leave the club after the end of the season, Bayern Munich are planning to hire Belgian manager Vincent Kompany to fill their coaching vacancy, according to The Guardian. Kompany returns from a disappointing campaign Burnley which saw them finish 19th in the Premier League and be relegated back to the Championship. While Kompany was able to lead an exciting attacking side in the English second division, that did not translate into the Premier League.

While he did lose some of his best players Nathan Tella And Ian Maatsen They both play in the Bundesliga, but Kompany does not have the average qualifications you expect from Bayern Munich. Spend time on coaching Anderlecht and Burnley, Kompany's potential has shown as his favored 4-2-3-1 has been dynamic, but his greatest honor as a manager has been winning the English Championship. If he eventually takes charge of Bayern, a Bundesliga title would be expected, but so would at least a DFB Pokal or a Champions League title.

With the presence of Bayer Leverkusen, who have grown into a force under Xabi Alonso, none of that would be easy for Kompany, but this would be an appointment that shows how much Bayern's name has fallen. Returning to Tuchel after reportedly trying out for Ralf Rangnick: Julian NagelsmannUnai Emery, Julen Lopetegui and Oliver Glasner, times are changing and Bayern can call any manager they want and have him take over.

Under CEO Oliver KahnBayern's decision-making was questionable, as Bayern even began to regret Nagelsmann's dismissal. It's an aging but talented team that needs a new spark Harry Kane but there are questions as to whether Kompany could be the man to bring that to the Allianz Arena.

Sometimes former players can step into these roles and excel, but for every example like Alonso there are three more examples Steven Gerrard. Although Kompany has more experience as a top manager of a team than either of these examples before getting their first 'big' job, getting a job with as high expectations as Bayern Munich could change things. Xabi received support from the entire front office and was allowed to make mistakes in finding his position, something Kompany would not be allowed to do.

This isn't even to say that Kompany is a bad manager, as given the circumstances he did well with a newly promoted side. He succeeded by Lyle Foster leave for mental wellbeing with excellent poise and is openly praised by his players for the atmosphere brought to Turf Moor, but in the Premier League the goals just weren't coming as they were only the third lowest scorers behind Sheffield United And Everton.

What is the most recent

As a deal gets closer to completion, Bayern have reportedly offered Kompany a contract until 2027although compensation is still being worked out with Burnley for his departure, it is believed that Burnley will receive around €10 million for their manager. It does not appear that his current assistant Craig Bellamy will join Kompany at Burnley after managing alongside him in Belgium and England after playing together at Manchester City. His preference seems to be to move to the United Kingdom and continue coaching there.

Now that the pieces are coming together, Kompany's arrival to take over the Bavarians could come soon.

Why would Bayern want to hire Kompany?

Looking back at anyone wanting their own Xabi, the key word is aura. When Xabi talks, everyone listens and participates in what he says. Even though Kompany doesn't have it to the same extent as the Leverkusen manager, when you listen to Kompany talk, even when it's about negative things like his team's relegation, you want to believe he will do well. He tried to get his Clarets to play a progressive style with through balls when they had space and tried to beat defenders in one-on-one situations, but man for man they were not good enough to convert that into wins.

While Kompany could have tried to defend more and run things back, that's also not a method that has been proven to always work, and those principles are things that could impress bigger teams like Bayern Munich. Bayern want to be ahead at all times as they need to be the better team in most matches and be able to push for possession. It's a strange situation when you know how many managers are linked together, but the common thread between them all is the ability to manage a club from top to bottom. Kompany is still growing in that sense, but that's where Bayern could have a gem on their hands if done right.

Is there any risk associated with the rental?

Given how much rejection has been seen at Bayern, it looks like they will take what they can get, but Kompany's lack of European experience as a manager could be a problem. He has made just three appearances in European competition, helping Anderlecht progress through the qualifying rounds of the Europa Conference League, where they fell to the Dutch side. Speed. These competitions are times when a manager must make big choices and may have to change from standard formations and use tactics to keep the opponent off balance, while also ensuring his team is well prepared.

In league matches, as long as there is consistency, Bayen should win most matches, but it is the adjustments in the matches that will make the difference. There are areas such as central defense where new players are needed and decisions need to be made in midfield, but this is a good side from top to bottom. Bayern scored the most goals in the Bundesliga with 94, but it amounted to 45 goals. A new manager does not have to reinvent the wheel when he takes over Bayern, but if the choice is for Kompany, he will have to quickly learn how to make a difference for the club at crucial moments.

It's hard to say if it would all work as it's a risky appointment for Bayen, but stranger things have worked too and produced club legends.
