Prior to the 2023–2024 season, it has been announced that two clubs would move from the Championship back to the Premier League.
Before the 2923/2024 club football season, two clubs moved up from the English championship to the premier league. Out of the three teams chosen, only Burnley and Sheffield United have received official confirmation that they would be making a comeback to English football’s top division.
After being sidelined for a whole season, Vincent Kompany’s Burnley clinched a return to the top level of football and the Sky Bet Championship title with a 1-0 victory over Blackburn FC.
In an interview with Sky Sports, head coach Vincent Kompany discussed this victory and shared the following information:
“I’m really happy. I’m so proud of the guys,
For anyone who doesn’t know what happens in this part of the world, this is a massive game, so there couldn’t be a better, bigger game for us to win the league. It will be talked about for generations.
I thought it was a template for us for things to come. This season, everybody’s made so much of the football we’ve played, but today we’ve shown how we can grind it out. We defended so well.
The backline was so brave and they took out dangers so well. It’s a side of the game we love as well. We don’t have a problem with hunting or pressing. On the ball, it was difficult – they did well. But, for us, it wasn’t anything different than we’re used to, we just adapted and did really well.”
Sheffield qualified as well after being second in the championship league, and they would be playing in the premier league for the first time in more than two years.
