I’m Super happy: Burnley in advance talk to sign top rate coach to replace Kompany

Bo Henriksen, the manager of Mainz, claims to be’super satisfied’ amid speculation over the Burnley vacancy.
Bo Henriksen insists he is content at FC Mainz despite speculation linking him to the vacant Burnley post.
The 49-year-old’s chances of succeeding Vincent Kompany fell last week when he was named second favourite.

This happened after the Clarets made the surprising appointment of Henrik Jensen as first-team assistant coach.Jensen had worked as Henriksen’s assistant at FC Midtjylland in Denmark before taking over as caretaker after Henriksen was fired.

Henriksen is currently based in Mainz, Germany, where he has worked since February.

Mainz were four points away from safety in the Bundesliga when he joined, but Henriksen managed to direct them to a 13th-place finish, two points ahead.

Despite the Burnley links, Henriksen, whose contract extends until 2026, claims he has no desire to leave.

“I am not commenting on any of that,” he told Danish publication Tipsbladet. “I am quite happy in Mainz and glad to be there.

“(Mainz) is an excellent club. My family has settled in nicely. That is the most crucial aspect. Then I’ll leave any further guesswork to agents and others.”

Ruud van Nistelrooy, a former favourite, has dropped down the betting odds as allegations surfaced that he is set to become Erik ten Hag’s assistant at his former club Manchester United.
Acting head coach Craig Bellamy now leads the betting ahead of Scott Parker and Carlos Corberan.

Earlier this week, QPR manager Marti Cifuentes pulled himself out of the race.

The 41-year-old has many admirers for his performance at Loftus Road last season, when he led the Hoops to safety.

The Spaniard was appointed in October, when QPR were second-bottom of the table after suffering their sixth consecutive defeat.

However, Cifuentes led the team to safety, completing the season in 18th place, six points ahead of the drop zone.
As a result, the former Hammarby manager has been connected with several managerial positions this summer, including Burnley and Sunderland.

However, in an interview with Sky Sports on Monday, Ciguentes hinted strongly that he sees his future in West London.
