GOMEZ EAGER FOR REUNION WITH KOMPANY
- Updated: August 8, 2023
Sergio Gomez is eagerly anticipating the Premier League opener on Friday, which will see him face his former manager Vincent Kompany.
SQUAD UNITY: A formidable team.
How can I watch Burnley vs. City on TV?
As City embarks on our quest for an unprecedented fourth consecutive title, we head to Turf Moor for our inaugural league clash of the season.
This fixture marks the second encounter with Vincent Kompany since his departure as a Club legend in 2019, following his leadership to our title victory.
Kompany’s legacy is commemorated by a statue outside the Etihad Stadium, highlighting his contribution to clinching 12 major honors with City.

The link between Gomez and Kompany emerged when the latter transitioned from Manchester to Anderlecht.
During his tenure with his hometown club, Kompany nurtured the growth of the talented Spanish player, who later earned the distinction of being named the club’s Player of the Season in 2021/22.
Kompany and Burnley visited the Etihad for an FA Cup quarter-final clash in March, and Gomez is now eagerly anticipating a reunion with his former mentor.
“For me, the match against Burnley holds a special significance as I spent a year under Vincent’s guidance, which significantly aided my growth as a player,” he expressed.
“It will be a delightful experience to compete against him.
“Vincent enjoyed a successful season last year, and Burnley rightfully belongs in the Premier League, ensuring that we anticipate a demanding contest.”

Gomez contributed to last season’s historic Treble success at City, featuring in 23 matches across various competitions.
The 22-year-old also shone brightly during the summer, achieving a remarkable feat by netting a joint-record three times as Spain advanced to the final of the U21 European Championship.
Gomez has revealed that Kompany has maintained an interest in his progress since their paths diverged from Anderlecht.
“We communicated during the vacation period, particularly while I was participating in the Euros,” he shared.
“He extended his congratulations for the tournament results and the titles we secured. I’m certain we’ll converse again, and it will be a pleasure to catch up before embarking on a new Premier League season.”
