Manchester United ‘legend’ to succeed Manchester City legend

Manchester United ‘legend’ to succeed Manchester City legend.

On the 20th, The Athletic reported, “Ruud van Nistelrooy (48) has started negotiations with Burnley. He is a leading candidate to become the club’s new manager.”

On June 30, Bayern Munich officially announced through the club’s official channels that it had “signed Vincent Kompany as head coach until June 30, 2027”.

Munich’s search for a new coach has been a difficult one. The club had already parted ways with Tuchel in February, but the search for a new coach was slow. Xabi Alonso, Julian Nagelsmann, Ralf Rangnick, Hans-Joachim Flick, Roberto De Zervi, and others were all rejected. They even asked Tuchel to stay on, but that didn’t work out either.

Munich’s choice was Kompany.

One of the best defenders in the game, Kompany also showed his talent as a coach. He led Burnley to the Championship (second division) title in the 2022-2023 season, winning four Manager of the Month awards in one year.

The ambitious Kompany brought the same high-pressing, aggressive tactics he used in the Championship to the Premier League, but he reached his limit. 안전놀이터 The barriers in the Premier League were high, and Burnley finished the season in 19th place with 24 points (5 wins, 9 draws, and 24 losses) and were relegated after just one season.

Burnley’s intentions were clear. They wanted to change the team’s basic style of play while still having faith in Kompany, who plays attacking soccer. Their intention was to move away from ‘passive defensive soccer’, even if it meant relegation.

Despite Burnley’s declaration of change, Bayern Munich approached Kompany and eventually put him in charge. It was an unbelievable turn of events: a Premier League relegation boss taking over at the helm of the ‘German champions’.

Burnley were left without a manager overnight.

Kompany, the most important member of the club’s long-term project, is gone. “Following the departure of Mr. Kompany, we are actively working to find a new manager,” Burnley said in a club statement on March 31st.

Burnley added: “We have appointed Craig Bellamy as acting manager with the assistance of Mike Jackson until a permanent manager is appointed. We will make another announcement on the appointment of a manager when the time is right.”

As reported by The Athletic at the time, Kompany told fans after failing to prevent Burnley’s relegation, “Let’s stick together. Good days will come again,” and spoke of hope and the club’s progress. But the man who took the microphone is now the manager of Munich.

“No one can blame Kompany, but Burnley fans can understand their frustration with him,” said the BBC.

“Kompany turned down the job less than 24 hours after being approached by Bayern Munich,” the BBC added.

Burnley’s search for a new manager began with Frank Lampard, but Van Nistelrooy now appears to be the more likely candidate.

Van Nistelrooy is a legendary striker who has played for Manchester United, Real Madrid, and more.

The Dutchman made his professional debut in 1998 with PSV Eindhoven.

During his time at PSV, van Nistelrooy caught the eye of former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson with his monster goal-scoring form, scoring 77 goals in 90 official games, and he moved to United for the 2001-2002 season.

Wearing the number 10 shirt, van Nistelrooy scored 23 goals in his debut season, including a Premier League record eight consecutive games in which he scored in the top-flight, and in the 2002-2003 season, he scored 36 goals in 49 official games to become the league’s top scorer with 25 goals.

Van Nistelrooy scored 150 goals in 219 appearances during his time at United, winning numerous individual awards during his career, including UEFA Player of the Year, Team of the Year, three Champions League goalscorer of the year, and Champions League assistant of the year. He also lifted four trophies with United, including one Premier League title.

Van Nistelrooy moved to Real Madrid in 2006, where he played until 2010, and later joined Son Heung-min at Hamburger SV for a short spell. Van Nistelrooy is also known for his friendship with Park Ji-Sung at United and a young Heung-min Son at Hamburg.

After retiring from Málaga CF in 2012,

Van Nistelrooy began his coaching career with the PSV U-17 team in 2013. He then went on to coach the Dutch national team and gained experience as head coach of the PSV U-19 team before taking over the reins of the PSV first team for the 2022-2023 season.

In his first season at the helm of PSV, Van Nistelrooy led the team to a second-place finish in the league in 2022-2023 and won the Dutch FA Cup (KNVB Baker). However, after frequent friction with the club’s hierarchy, he officially resigned in May of last year.

The Athletic added: “Van Nistelrooy is one of several candidates Burnley are considering. Assistant manager Craig Bellamy, Scott Parker and Carlos Coberan, who has been in interim charge since Kompany’s departure, are also being considered. Lampard was also a candidate, but his appointment is currently unlikely.”

“Van Nistelrooy led PSV to domestic cup success, but resigned shortly before the end of the season, citing a lack of support from the club. In May, 슬롯사이트 순위 van Nistelrooy expressed his ambition to manage in all three leagues he played in (Premier League, La Liga, and Bundesliga).”
