Aston Villa: Vincent Kompany in contention for manager’s job

Aston Villa: Vincent Kompany in contention for manager’s job -Aston Villa News

Aston Villa reportedly see Burnley manager Vincent Kompany as a strong contender to be their next first-team boss, according to a report from Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Kompany thriving at Burnley

The Belgian’s legendary playing days are now behind him and he is looking to thrive in management, with the early signs certainly promising for him.

Kompany is thriving at Burnley, guiding them to third place in the Championship currently and looking strong contenders for an immediate return to the Premier League.

As Villa continue their search for a new manager after Steven Gerrard’s sacking four days ago, the 36-year-old has emerged as a candidate for the job.

The Latest: Villa eye Kompany move

According to Football Insider, Kompany is a ‘strong contender’ to be the Villans’ next boss and he is ‘firmly on the radar’ of NSWE.

A move is reportedly being ‘lined up’ for the former Manchester City captain, suggesting he is now a front-runner to take charge in the near future. The report adds that preliminary talks are ‘likely’ to be held with the Belgian ‘in the coming days’.

Aston Villa fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Exciting young option

There would be an element of risk in Villa hiring Kompany as their new manager, given his lack of experience in the dugout, but he looks like he has the making of an exciting head coach.

At only 36, he could bring fresh ideas to Villa Park rather than an older manager with outdated methods, and he is also a down-to-earth character with strong morals.

Should Villa move for Conor Gallagher?

Yes

No

Kompany was described as ‘incredible‘ by his then-Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola during his playing days, praise which is justified by the Belgian’s inclusion in the Premier League Hall of Fame, and he is an intelligent figure who could prove to be an inspired appointment by Villa if they go for him.
