Vincent Kompany must follow strict car rule at Bayern Munich

Vincent Kompany must follow strict car rule at Bayern Munich

Kompany looks set to be appointed as Bayern boss.

Burnley boss Vincent Kompany must follow a strict car rule if he is appointed as Bayern Munich manager.

The Belgian looks set to take over at the Allianz Arena from the beginning of next season following the departure of Thomas Tuchel.

Bayern had conducted a lengthy managerial search since announcing Tuchel's exit in March.

After they were turned down by Ralf Rangnick, Xabi Alonso and Julian Nagelsmann, their attention turned to Kompany.

The former Manchester City defender was relegated with Burnley this season, but Allianz Arena chiefs reportedly hold the belief that his style of play will be suited to Bayern's players.

According to Sky Sports, Kompany has a verbal agreement to take over at Bayern this summer, with the Champions League semi-finalists now in talks with the Clarets over a compensation fee.

If he does become the next Bayern manager, Kompany will have to follow a strict car rule during his time at the club.

Bayern and Audi have a long-term partnership, with the German car manufacturers owning a minority 8.33 per cent share in the club as part of that agreement.

It is believed that Bayern players and staff are given a company car from Audi upon their arrival at the club.

Harry Kane received his company car after arriving at Bayern from Tottenham last summer - with the club's official accounts even filming the moment he was presented with his new vehicle.

It is expected that squad members drive to and from the club's training base in their Audi cars, as well as to and from matches and other 'club-related activities'.

The players are not strictly bound to using Audis - as long as they drive a car from within the Volkswagen group, including Bentleys, Bugattis and Porsches.

In 2021, Bayern winger Kingsley Coman was fined by the club for turning up to training in a McLaren, according to BILD. But he had a good reason for doing so.

"I would like to apologise to the club and Audi for not having come to training in my company car," he said in a statement.

"The reason was a damaged wing mirror on my Audi. Still, that was a mistake, of course I can see that.

"As a reparation, I will visit the Audi plant in Ingolstadt for an autograph hour as soon as possible and bring some attention to the employees."
