Kompany positive despite Burnley’s struggles

Burnley boss Vincent Kompany is hoping his squad adapt to the Premier League “at some point”.

With the season beyond its halfway point, the Clarets sit second from bottom, five points adrift of safety and facing a crunch game tomorrow night at home to fellow strugglers Luton.

And while Kompany is full of praise for his players’ mentality, he accepts they ned to start getting wins on the board.

He said: “I hope at some point they adapt. The thing that would make me most nervous is if you don’t have the right characters.

“The reasons why I kept telling you I enjoy working with this team is because it’s genuine. I have a team who have a growth mindset. On top of improvement, you want results. What they are showing now, should turn into results. My belief is that these types of signs do turn into results.”

Burnley have won just three league games this season following promotion, but one came at Kenilworth Road in October.

That was a rare highlight for Burnley in the season’s early weeks but Kompany does think Burnley have improved of late.

“I think the biggest thing is that at the start of the campaign, there was a clear gap between us and most of the teams we were facing,” he added.

“But for 12 games that hasn’t been there anymore. We can make it happen against anyone on a good day and I can say similar for Luton.

“Both teams will be feeling confident in improving in the league but tomorrow, the importance of the game is to turn around the performance.”

Kompany is hoping to add players to his squad during the January window but admits it’s unlikely they will sign “game changers”.

“I’ll be honest, there’s a big chance we do some strengthening in couple of positions, but we’re managing expectations,” he said.

“It will be difficult to bring in the real, immediate game changers but we can use extra depth in the squad.”
