Sport: Thus he takes over from Thomas Tuchel, who had to leave the club after the Germans went through their first trophyless season since 2011/12.

Bayern finished the Bundesliga in a disappointing 3rd place, in addition to losing to Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions League. There was also a belly splash in the cup when they lost to the 3rd division team Saarbrücken.

Kompany is also coming off a tough season at Burnley, where they finished 19th and were relegated from the Premier League. He has also previously managed Anderlecht in his home country.

According to the German news agency DPA, Bayern will pay up to NOK 136 million to release Kompany from the Burnley contract.

However, the Belgian has an impressive playing career behind him, where he was part of securing four league titles with Manchester City.

In 2020, the 38-year-old ended his playing career with 35 goals and 26 assists in 622 games for club and A national team.
