Vincent Kompany on losing Nick Pope, James Tarkowski and Ben Mee

"It goes with potential drops in revenue when you fall from PL. Realise that some valuable players have to move on. We've got depth in quality, certainly for the Championship, though others earned the right to move on.

“Looking forward to bringing in some exciting players. Players attract interest, we expect that. It's an experienced squad and we want balance. “

"It's always been an incredibly difficult place to come Turf Moor. It's a place of history and tradition. At the training ground you've got everything you need for a high performance environment."

What can we expect from Burnley under the new regime?

“We need short-term results, and what I’ve found more important is we just have an environment where we stay together - good times, bad times, we can stay on course for where we want to go, and rather than making a big announcement of ‘this is where we want to be’. it’s more about having the discipline to believe in each other.”
