Burnley manager Vincent Kompany has refused to talk about potenital interest in the currently vacant Tottenham Hotspur job.


90min understands that Kompany is one of the names being considered by Spurs, who are looking to find Antonio Conte’s permanent replacement. However, talk that the impressive Belgian is first choice has been down-played by sources at Tottenham.

Asked about the links to Tottenham and his future at Burnley future, Kompany said: “It is not at the forefront of my thoughts at all. Wherever I am, in my head, it is always the biggest job in the world.”

Asked if he was happy at Turf Moor, the 37-year-old insisted he is, having already sealed the Clarets’ promotion back to the Premier League with six games to spare.

“I know the question, but what can I say? I’m not happy? We are 14 points clear at the top of the Championship,” the former Manchester City captain said.

“I don’t waste answers on my future. I said that from day one at Burnley, in anticipation that one day there would be questions like this. [I will] crack on. I’m focusing on Reading and the next games.

“It’s an enviable place to work. We have infrastructure, we have talent, it’s an enjoyable place to work.”

Kompany previously had a spell in charge of Belgian giants Anderlecht, where he started his own playing career, and took charge of Burnley last summer.
