Burnley boss Kompany handed two-match touchline ban

Burnley boss Vincent Kompany has been handed a two-match touchline ban – one of which is suspended until December 31, 2024 – after being found guilty of misconduct during the game at Chelsea last month.

The Belgian received a red card for protesting the decision to award Chelsea a penalty after Lorenz Assignon was adjudged to have fouled Mykhailo Mudryk inside the area shortly before half-time.

Assignon was also sent-off.

Kompany outlined his frustration again after the game, claiming “there’s probably a little bit of reflection needed to make sure we improve the standards in our game.”

He added: “I haven’t got any issues with being fined. I just want it to be right. It’s not something I say in a vindictive way, you can see I’m not even as angry anymore. We’ve just got to get it right and at this moment in time, it’s fallen short.”

Kompany, who was also handed a £10,000 fine, pleaded guilty to the charge and will be in the stand when Burnley host Brighton on Saturday.

The Clarets are 19th in the Premier League, six points adrift of safety.

Reflecting on the sanction, Kompany said: “It’s fair enough. I totally acknowledge that what I said in the moment does not reflect what I feel about the official and the integrity of someone. It was too harsh and it was not what I meant.

“It is a game of emotions, you have passion. You have so much belief when you build up to a game and especially in this league you just can’t give an inch to anyone. It has been a long season so you do carry those events into the game sometimes.

“The most important part is to be able to recognise if you have made a mistake and move on.

“It will make things quite unpleasant for me on Saturday but I have full trust in my coaches and in my players and their ability to rise to the challenge. On match day, the players are the most important people and that’s what we need to reflect.”
