It’s been a rough start to the season for United boss, Erik ten Hag, having suffered four defeats from six games in all competitions and conceding the most goals (14) in the Premier League. The pressure is mounting.
However, as the Red Devils prepare to face Burnley this Saturday, there’s another man with a vision, a vision to make Turf Moor a fortress and cause more upset to Man United—Vincent Kompany.
The former Manchester City captain and current Burnley boss shared his thoughts on the upcoming clash against Man United during his pre-match press conference on Thursday.
On Facing Manchester United Amidst Current Woes:
“I am only trying to assess my team’s strengths and weaknesses,” the Burnley boss said, reflecting on the challenge of facing Manchester United amidst their current struggles.
“I have been at a big club when you lose a couple and the pressure can mount.
“Our focus is on the pitch.”
Kompany’s Vision for Turf Moor:
“I really want this place to be difficult for anyone to come to,” Kompany declared passionately about Turf Moor.
“Teams of the calibre of Manchester United, we have not been able to put in a 100-minute performance.
“We have been a threat but got punished in the moment we weren’t.
“Can we step it up and get a result against one of the top teams in the league?”
Optimism for the Clash:
The Burnley boss revealed his optimism about the upcoming clash.
“I will talk about the mental strength of our team,” Kompany emphasized.
“We have played against three of the top eight, and that gap is always there.
“I am really looking forward to this game and seeing if we have made those steps.”
