Nagelsmann on Kompany's imminent move to Bayern: "I've heard he's a very good coach"

Julian Nagelsmann has shared his thoughts on Vincent Kompany amid reports that the Burnley manager is set to be appointed as Bayern Munich coach.

All signs point to Vincent Kompany becoming the new Bayern Munich coach, with several reports claiming that the Bavarians have a full deal in place to hire the Burnley manager as Thomas Tuchel's successor.

Ahead of Saturday's DFB-Pokal final between Bayer Leverkusen and Kaiserslautern, Germany coach Julian Nagelsmann was asked about the 38-year-old, who played under former Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola, among others, during his playing career.

"I don't know him very well or personally, but I wish him all the best. I've heard that he's a very good coach. He learned a lot from great coaches who trained him. That's why he'll do well," Nagelsmann said on German television.

The fact that Bayern are coming off a disappointing season in which they didn't win the title and finished third will make Kompany's job easier, according to Nagelsmann.

"The club is in a state of upheaval. It's good for the club that they haven't won the league. A young coach can make more changes now that they haven't been champions".
