Kompany from Burnley dismisses speculation about Man Utd turmoil
Burnley manager Vincent Kompany revealed on Thursday that he is not concerned with the crisis talk surrounding Manchester United. Despite United’s recent struggles, including a 4-3 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, Kompany is solely focused on his own team as they prepare to face Erik ten Hag’s side on Saturday at Turf Moor.
Kompany stated, “When it comes to evaluating United, I only consider their strengths and weaknesses as they relate to my team. Having been part of a big club myself, I understand the pressure that can build when you suffer a few defeats. However, I prefer to concentrate on what happens on the pitch rather than discussing their situation.”
Kompany, who praised the capabilities of Ten Hag, aims to build on Burnley’s recent progress following a 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest, which marked their first point of the season. After three consecutive home losses to Manchester City, Aston Villa, and Tottenham, the draw was a positive step forward for Burnley.
“I’m eagerly anticipating this game to see if we have made further improvements,” Kompany expressed. “I have strong belief in our attacking prowess and our ability to create scoring opportunities. I hope this will be evident during Saturday’s match.”
