Burnley manager Vincent Kompany tells Manchester United to give their manager Erik ten Hag need time to adapt and improve
Manchester City legend and current Burnley manager Vincent Kompany talked to the media (h/t Mirror) before Saturday’s clash with Manchester United at Turf Moor.
The former Belgium International stated that he is more focused on what his side can do as Burnley in the upcoming match. The Clarets are without a win in the Premier League having played big clubs like Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.
Kompany answered many questions as the one question about United’s form was inevitable. The Red Devils are also struggling with form, having lost three games in five Premier League matches.
Kompany admitted the tough expectation and demand that comes with the job at a big club. He claimed that just like any manager, United manager Erik ten Hag is also just one loss away from “crisis”. He said:
“When you’re at a top club, you’re always one loss away from a crisis, it’s not just United, it’s every top club. Being a manager is no different to being a manager in any other environment. You always need time to adapt and improve. It’s not just for Erik ten Hag, it’s for all of us and one thing this manager has demonstrated is he’s extremely capable. There’s absolutely no doubting that.”
The Red Devils are returning from their 4-3 loss against Bayern Munich in Champions League Group A opening game.
Ten Hag would be hoping that the win against Burnley can change the predicament he is facing at United.
The Dutchman has been shackled with off-field controversies and injury-crisis at United and a win can shift the focus back to football.
Kompany stated that the United manager is highly capable and requires time to adapt and improve. However, we have to emphasize the importance of managing time carefully, considering how quickly things can change at a big club like United.
