Bayern Munich asked Pep Guardiola for his opinion before appointing Vincent Kompany as coach.

Munich have been the dominant force in the German Bundesliga for years. Since the 2012-13 season, they have dominated the league for 11 years. Recently, they’ve faltered a bit. They won the title last season, but lost the top spot to Dortmund at one point.

This season, Munich has invested aggressively. They signed Harry Kane, Kim Min-Jae, and others to bolster their squad. The intention is to win the league and challenge for the UEFA Champions League (UCL).

But it didn’t start out well. Munich lost the German Super Cup to RB Leipzig at the start of the season, dropping the trophy. The same happened in other competitions. They were eliminated from the DFB-Pokal and UCL. In the Bundesliga, they failed to win the title as they couldn’t stop Leverkusen, who went undefeated. They even lost their pride by failing to win a single game against Leverkusen.

In the end, Munich decided to part ways with head coach Thomas Tuchel. The club decided that a change of manager was necessary to turn things around. Tuchel”s original contract was until the summer of 2025, but the club decided to terminate it after this season.

Munich have found a new coach. Xabi Alonso, formerly of Leverkusen, and Julian Nagelsmann, head coach of the German national soccer team, were among the names mentioned, but nothing concrete emerged. The Bavarians then contacted Kompany, formerly of Manchester City.

During his career, Kompany earned a reputation as a world-class defender. He has won numerous trophies, including the Premier League (PL), English FA Cup, and English Football League Cup (EFL Cup).

After leaving City, Kompany began his coaching career as a player and manager at Anderlecht in Belgium. He hung up his boots in the 2020-21 season to focus on coaching, where he led the 먹튀검증 team to the UEFA Europa Conference League.

His leadership skills were recognized and he took charge of Burnley in the English Football League Championship (Second Division) for the 2022-23 season. In his first season in charge, Kompany led the team to the title and secured promotion to the PL. At the end of the season, he was named Championship Manager of the Year.

However, he struggled in the PL. Under Kompany, Burnley finished 19th in the league and were relegated back to the second tier a season after promotion. Still, Munich wanted Kompany.
