Burnley Secures Promotion to Premier League: How Vincent Kompany Led the Way
Burnley FC's promotion back to the Premier League is a story of perseverance and dedication.
Burnley FC has secured promotion back to the Premier League after spending a season in the Championship. The Clarets' manager, Vincent Kompany, has praised his players for their resilience and hard work, which ultimately led to their success. In this article, we will take a closer look at Burnley's journey back to the Premier League, what promotion means for the club and the celebrations that followed.
The Road Back to the Premier League
Burnley's journey back to the Premier League was not an easy one. After being relegated from the Premier League in the 2021/22 season, the club had to regroup and rebuild. The relegation hit the team hard and they went on to fire their then-manager Sean Dyche, who'd spent a decade at the club.

Vincent Kompany's Appointment as Burnley Manager
In comes Vincent Kompany and his style of fresh football. Kompany was appointed Burnley manager in June 2022, just after they were relegated. Relegation meant that the club's financial resources would even be more scarce and it would risk players leaving for other teams, as the club would likely be unable to pay its best players. It was, therefore, a huge risk to bring on Kompany, a relatively inexperienced manager.
