Vincent Kompany's eye-watering wage at Bayern Munich emerges after becoming new manager

Vincent Kompany's eye-watering wage at Bayern Munich emerges after becoming new manager

Vincent Kompany was confirmed as Bayern Munich’s head coach this week.

Vincent Kompany’s eye-watering salary at Bayern Munich has reportedly been revealed.

Back in February, it was confirmed that Thomas Tuchel will leave Bayern at the end of the 23/24 season.

Since then, the likes of Xabi Alonso, Erik ten Hag, Roberto De Zerbi and a host of other managers have all been linked with a move to Bavaria.

After weeks of speculation, it was announced on Wednesday that former Manchester City captain Kompany has become Bayern’s new head coach.

A statement from the club read: “FC Bayern have confirmed Vincent Kompany as their new head coach. The 38-year-old has agreed a contract with the German record champions through to 30 June 2027. The former Belgium international most recently managed English Premier League club Burnley.”

Now, the 38-year-old's salary at Bayern has been revealed.

Sky Germany reporter Florian Plettenberg wrote on social media: “Excl. | FC Bayern dug deep into their pockets for Vincent #Kompany. His salary is in the range of €7-9 million gross per year with possible add-ons included!

“For comparison, Tuchel's salary at FC Bayern was around €9 million gross per year plus bonuses. Nagelsmann‘s and Flick‘s salary at FC Bayern were around €6 million gross per year plus add-ons.”


After years of dominance at the top of German football, Bayern endured a tough 23/24 season.

Their 10-year winning streak in the Bundesliga was halted after Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen went the whole season unbeaten to clinch the title.

In addition, Tuchel’s men were knocked out of the Champions League in the semi-finals by Real Madrid.

Kompany will now be tasked with bringing glory back to the Allianz Arena after he had a disappointing 23/24 season in charge of Burnely, who were relegated from the Premier League.

The Belgian said during his first press conference: “I'm looking forward to the challenge of FC Bayern. It's a great honour to be able to work for this club - FC Bayern is an institution in international football.”
