Vincent Kompany responds after being given the backing of Burnley shareholder JJ Watt

Vincent Kompany has welcomed the open lines of communication with Burnley’s hierarchy after being given JJ Watt’s full backing.

Following a disappointing start to the season, several members of the club’s fanbase have questioned Kompany’s future.

The Clarets are bottom of the Premier League league, having lost 11 of their first 13 games, and meet relegation rivals Sheffield United in a crucial six-pointer on Saturday.
Watt, a Turf Moor minority shareholder, told the Pat McAfee Show, “He ain’t going, I’ll tell you that right now.”

In response to those remarks, Kompany expressed gratitude for Watt’s support and commended the club for its transparency behind the scenes.

“There are many shareholders at the club, you know that!,” he said.

“But no, it’s always better than hearing the opposite of that, right? But I think in all fairness the lines of communication within the club are open enough for me to have conversations, whether it’s on a daily basis or a weekly basis, that are always very transparent and very clear.

“He’s going to be doing a lot of interviews between now and the next game after that, so I can’t answer to every quote.

“It’s happening in America as well, right? Come on guys, put it into context.”

Watt traveled to the United Kingdom last week to watch Burnley’s humiliating 2-1 loss to West Ham.

The Clarets led until the 86th minute and looked to be on their way to their first home win of the season, only to lose for the seventh time in a row.
