Clarets fans will already be well accustomed to seeing the likes of Craig Bellamy and Mike Jackson manning the technical area alongside Kompany.

That man is Eliot Tybebo, a Belgian set-piece coach that joined the club earlier this summer.

He made the move from Turf Moor from Kompany’s former club Anderlecht, where he spent 10 years rising through the ranks.

He began in the club’s academy system as a youth coach, before working as a video analyst for the Under-21 side and latterly a set-piece coach for the first-team, which he began in 2019.

Tybebo has a bachelor’s degree in physical education and exercise sciences from the Free University of Brussels, as well as a master’s degree in football coaching from the same establishment.

He speaks four languages: Dutch, French, German and English.

He will be well known to Floribert Ngalula, who followed Kompany from Anderlecht last summer after being appointed Burnley boss.

Tybebo isn’t the only new hire in the club’s backroom division this summer, with analyst Piet Cremers also making the move to Turf Moor from Manchester City, where he spent four-and-a-half years before moving on last summer.

After leaving City, Cremers returned to his native Holland to work on completing his UEFA A licence.

During his time working under Pep Guardiola, Cremers specialised in the individual development of players.
