Vincent Kompany has been criticised by former band Oasis’’ singer and Man City fan Noel Gallagher and warned to stay away from ‘silly’ Tottenham.
The Burnley manager has been linked with a transfer to Tottenham, who are in urgent need of a new manager after last week’s dismissal of Antonio Conte.
Burnley is currently 13 points clear at the top of the Championship, making Kompany’s time with the Clarets a major success. This accomplishment is all the more remarkable given his lively, aggressive style of play.
The legendary Manchester City player was expected to fight for a transfer back to the Etihad Stadium, and Pep Guardiola even predicted that the player will eventually make a comeback.
Gallagher, a former member of Oasis and a devoted supporter of City, thinks that Kompany would be crazy to leave for north London and would love to see him come back to City.
“He should get Burnley through to the top this season and into the Premier League then see what happens,” Gallagher stated on The Sports Breakfast.
“Who would go even close to Tottenham? Just anyone wouldn’t. Do you understand what I mean when I say Tottenham are a joke? Would he ever return to City? Yeah. We admire him and always will since he is an amazing icon at our club.”
At the age of 22, Kompany was signed for £6 million to become a player for Man City in 2008. He was elected captain during his stay at the club, where he also won the league four times and the FA Cup twice.
