Vincent Kompany, the well-respected manager of Burnley, has been linked with several high-profile positions, including taking over as manager at Leeds United. Journalist Pete O’Rourke believes that Leeds United convincing Kompany to take over at Elland Road would be a ‘massive coup’; however, he doesn’t see it as a likely possibility.
Kompany has grown his own reputation as a manager considerably at Burnley, leading them to the Sky Bet Championship title and a return to the Premier League in his first year in charge. Therefore, it would be a risky decision for him to take over at Elland Road and risk jeopardising his CV.
Furthermore, Leeds United’s current Premier League status is also a concern, as the Whites are currently embroiled in a relegation battle. Despite being a massive club with one of the most passionate fanbases in the United Kingdom, it is doubtful that they can convince Kompany to join them.
For now, it looks like Kompany may continue on at Turf Moor as he prepares to manage in the English top flight for his first time. Meanwhile, Leeds United will likely continue their search for a new manager who can bring success to the club.
