Burnley manager Vincent Kompany addresses the possibility of an important player returning to the team.

Anass Zaroury’s contribution in Burnley’s midweek cup triumph against Salford City did not surprise Vincent Kompany.
The 22-year-old was involved in all four goals as the Clarets cruised through their League Two opponents to advance to the fourth round.

It’s been a tough start to the season for the winger, whose playing time has been limited due to a three-game suspension for his red card against Manchester City on the opening day.

But Zaroury seized his opportunity, and he’ll now attempt to translate it into league play, beginning this weekend against Newcastle United.

“We all know his creativity, he’s the type of player that makes things happen in the final third whether it’s a cross, a shot or a dribble,” Kompany stated.

“For me it’s just seeing the players enjoy wearing the shirt, playing football, not really worrying too much about who you’re up against and just enjoying playing together and they showed a lot of that.”

While the league is definitely the focus for Burnley, Kompany is eager to progress as far as possible in the Carabao Cup.

“For me personally it’s always been a nice trophy to play for, I’ve always been privileged to be successful in it,” he stated.

“I want our players and fans to understand what it’s like to play the big teams in the later rounds, but we need the squad.”

“I’ve never known any squad being successful in this competition without using the full depth of the squad and we saw that with many players to look forward to and watching for us.”
