Former NFL star JJ Watt has revealed the fate of Burnley FC manager Vincent Kompany, after the team’s crushing defeat against West Ham United.

JJ, who invested in Burnley ahead of the club’s return to the Premier League earlier this year, appeared on The Pat McAfee show, a daily sports talk show hosted by former NFL punter Pat McAfee, on ESPN and ESPN's YouTube channel.

On the episode he answered questions about Kompany’s future.

This came after Burnley’s seventh consecutive home defeat on Saturday, November 25, where the team conceded two goals in the space of five minutes.

The Clarets lost the game 2-1 to West Ham United and sit rock bottom of the Premier League with only four points, and a goal difference of -22.

For much of the second half it seemed as though Jay Rodriguez’s 49th minute penalty was going to earn the Clarets a vital win and lift them off the bottom of the Premier League table.

But an 87th-minute own goal from Dara O’Shea, under pressure from West Ham teenager Divin Mubama, levelled it before Soucek volleyed home a second in the first of seven minutes added on.

On The Pat McAfee show, JJ spoke of the devastation he felt while he watched in the fan zone.

He said:  “It was devastating, there is no other way to put it. I was in the stand with fans and we were up 1-0 against a team that’s playing really well.

“That’s the whole reason I fly I over there, this moment. I wanted to be the good luck charm.

“We are all cheering, high fiving and beer is flying everywhere.

“[Around] the 86th minute West Ham scored the goal and five minutes later it was just pure devastation.”

Pat McAfee asked JJ if he planned to “fire the coach immediately” and joked that he should be replaced by Gump Cathcart, a member of the show's crew,  but JJ said this would not happen.

He said: “He isn’t going, I will tell you this right now.”

Burnley welcome fellow promoted side Sheffield United to Turf Moor this Saturday (December 2) and JJ admitted that this is a “large game”, with both teams struggling to pick up points.

He said: “There is no doubt that this is a large game. We are both in the relegation zone at the moment.”

According to Sky Bet, Kompany is second favourite to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked, at odds of 7/2; Blades coach Paul Heckingbottom is favourite at 11/8.

JJ represented the Houston Texans and the Arizona Cardinals in a distinguished career in which he won three NFL defensive player of the year awards.

His wife Kealia, who also invested in Burnley, represented Houston Dash and Chicago Red Stars.
