‘I Can Confirm’: Fabrizio Romano Reveals ‘Very Special’ Premier League Winner Tottenham ‘Appreciate’ in Manager Chase

Vincent Kompany

Tottenham Hotspur appreciate the quality and achievements of Burnley manager Vincent Kompany as they keep their search ongoing for a permanent replacement for Antonio Conte, claims Fabrizio Romano. Conte was sacked last month, after which Cristian Stellini took over as interim manager.

Tottenham Hotspur Appreciate Vincent Kompany as Possible New Manager

Tottenham’s Stance on Kompany Revealed

Kompany has been doing impressive work in charge of Burnley and helped them secure promotion to the Premier League earlier this month, even though there are still many matches left in the Championship. The Clarets have dominated the league under him, winning 26 out of their 42 games so far this season.

Romano adds that even though Tottenham do appreciate the ability of Kompany as a football manager, and his tactical knowledge, they are yet to make a final decision on who will be the replacement for Conte.

He wrote in his CaughtOffside column: “I can confirm that Tottenham appreciates Vincent Kompany, I’ve said in the last few weeks that Vincent is one of the managers they like after his impressive work at Burnley. But the feeling inside the club is that nothing has been decided yet on the new head coach. It will take time to decide the new manager with Daniel Levy on it.”

Can Kompany Be A Good Fit for Tottenham?

The Belgian manager, who won multiple Premier League titles as Manchester City captain, has adapted really well to the transition from his playing career to a managerial role. He’s redefined the way Burnley play football, going from a rugged defensive approach to more free-flowing, exciting attacking football.

In fact, the Clarets have scored 80 goals in 42 league games under him, the highest in the Championship and only conceded 32. The 37-year-old has been innovative with his approach and helped many players improve under him.

He could become a pretty good addition for Tottenham, who have played relatively defensive football since the departure of Mauricio Pochettino. But, for the time being, Kompany – hailed for his ‘special’ work as Burnley boss – is only appreciated by Spurs, as Daniel Levy takes his time with appointing a new manager.
