Burnley FC returns to the Premier League (PL) after one season.
Burnley defeated Middlesbrough 2-1 in the 40th round of the 2022-2023 season England Championship (second division) held at Riverside Stadium in Middlesbrough, England on the 8th (Korean time).
With this, Burnley, who achieved 87 points (25 wins, 12 draws, 2 losses), widened the gap with 3rd place Luton Town (68 points) to 19 points, confirming the second place or higher for promotion tickets. If Burnley loses all the remaining 7 games, and even if Luton wins all the remaining 6 games, the reverse does not happen.
Burnley finished 18th in the PL last season and was relegated to the second division. He even tried to sack coach Sean Daichi, who led the team for nearly 10 years, but it was useless.
It was different in the championship. Burnley appointed a new manager, Vincent Kompany (37) from Manchester City, and succeeded in improving his constitution. Coach Kompany, who was in charge of Anderlecht in Belgium, changed the team by recruiting five players from the Belgian league alone. 먹튀검증
First of all, the score increased noticeably. Burnley is the top scorer in the league with 76 goals in 39 league games. It is the exact opposite of Daichi’s days when he pursued practical soccer with high air supremacy and direct attack.
Coach Kompany washed away concerns about his lack of experience and won the Manager of the Month award four times. Thanks to that, Burnley secured his early promotion. “We are the Premier League. Yes, the Premier League!”, exclaimed on social media. “We’re not done yet.”
Burnley now challenges the championship record for most points. If Burnley win all of their remaining games, he will rise to 108 points, two points above the 106 mark set by Reading in 2005.
