The second, his win against Michael Carrick’s Middlesbroughformer Manchester United player.

And it is that the historic ex-player of Manchester City has needed less than a year to write his name in gold letters in the history of Burnley. A year in which he has changed, and a lot, the situation of the Clarets. On Good Friday 2022, with the team sunk in the Premier League standings, Burnley announced the dismissal of Sean Dyche after nearly nine seasons and more than 400 games. The team was relegated and, after the internship of Mike Jackson, the board of directors Clarets entrusted the mission of promotion to the Belgian. A mission that Vincent Kompany has completed precisely on Good Friday 2023.

The Clarets they still have in their hands reaching the record 28 victories for Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United, as well as surpassing the 106 points that Reading achieved in promotion in the 2005/2006 campaign. For it, Burnley must win the remaining seven games of the season and add a total of 108 points. Even so, whatever happens, Vincent Kompany will meet again with his teacher next season, this time in the Premier League.
