The transfer ban imposed by the English league last March on Burnley has been lifted, announced on Friday the Clarets. The embargo had been pronounced in March when the club had not submitted its annual accounts on time. These were reassessed at the end of April, releasing the club from Vincent Kompany.
The origin of the error being due to a change of accountant, Vincent Kompany declared to be “reassured by the new financial management which is more solid and more stable.“
The coach will therefore be able to be active on the transfer market this summer in order to best prepare Burnley’s return to the first division.
Vincent Kompany was not surprised by the news which arrived this Friday in the British media.
“I was not worried. Today is the confirmation of what we explained a few months ago. We made an administrative error that was accepted. Now the problem is solved, and we can move on.“
After a year’s absence, Burnley will return to the Premier League next season.
