Vincent Kompany addresses Burnley striker shortcomings but doesn't see transfer necessity

Vincent Kompany does not feel Burnley signing a striker is a necessity before the end of the transfer window despite the Clarets shortcomings in front of goal.

Burnley suffered a 1-0 reverse to Watford on Friday night and have managed only two goals in their opening three Championship matches despite having created chances and dominated possession. A natural goalscorer seems the obvious solution to the problem but Kompany is confident the goals can be shared around the team.

And while he continues to try and add to his squad, although he was tight-lipped on the prospect of concluding a deal for Stuttgart’s Darko Churlinov, the Turf boss does not feel a new striker is imperative, citing the price-tags of proven centre forwards as one hurdle as well his belief in the attacking talent already at his disposal.

Asked by Lancs Live whether he felt it was vital a new striker was added, Kompany said: “What I don’t want to do is put all my attention and focus on something that might not be feasible. I am extremely happy to work with the players that I have got.

“I see a lot of potential. I see no reason not to back them based on their attitude and what they do every day. I have seen enough chances in the last three games, it’ll happen.

“My reference point is last season I had a team (Anderlecht) who had scored 107 goals and they were spread across the team. To look at the centre forward and rely on that, the lad at Watford (Dennis) is worth what? £30million? So there is no point us looking at that.

“We have to spread the goals and do we have goals in this team and in Tella, Benson, Bastien, Brownhill, Maatsen, Barnes, Rodriguez. One might get more than the other but I think there is goal threat in our team but it has to be collective. We still have Twiney to come in.

“I think we have goals in the team, but I think that will happen from players understanding each other better, rather than an isolated moment, where we are struggling to score. It will take time, but we will get there.”

Burnley have a win, a draw and a defeat from their opening three games and now face a busy period with Hull City, Blackpool and Wigan coming in the space of 12 days with a Carabao Cup trip to Shrewsbury Town also on the agenda. The Clarets are likely to be mid-table come the end of the weekend but Kompany is pleased with what he’s seen so far and feels there is more to come once the newly-assembled squad gel, with converting chances the main area to improve.

“In this game you have got to score goals, and to score goals we have to create chances and that on that side of it we can create more, but we have created enough to win games,” said the boss. “Then you play against teams who did well last season and Watford who still have Premier League players.

“We’ve conceded three shots on target I think in three games so that is a good thing. We have to get the consistency and learn about how the players fit into every position, and the relationship with other players and to integrate them.

“You are a few games down before you have the whole puzzle fitted and meanwhile you have to get results but I have no doubt we will have consistent periods of success. It is just a matter of time.”
