Sean Dyche sacked by Burnley

Sean Dyche has been sacked by Burnley football club in a surprise announcement, the club has confirmed.

The club finds itself in another relegation scrap in the Premier League.

The Lancashire club sits 18th in the league table, four points adrift from safety despite showing recent fighting spirit with eight games remaining.

Firstly, we would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Sean and his staff for their achievements at the club over the last decade,” club chairman Alan Pace said in a statement.

“During his time at Turf Moor, Sean has been a credit both on and off the pitch, respected by players, staff, supporters, and the wider football community.

“However, results this season have been disappointing and, while this was an incredibly difficult decision, with eight crucial games of the campaign remaining, we feel a change is needed to give the squad the best possible chance of retaining its Premier League status.

“The process of replacing Sean has begun and further announcements will be made to supporters in due course.”

Sean Dyche was the longest-serving manager in the Premier League before his dismissal. The 50-year-old spent 10 years at the club often outperforming others with better means in securing top-flight survival for his side.

Jurgen Klopp at 6 years and 189 days takes up the mantle of the longest-serving Premier League manager followed by Pep Guardiola at 5 years and 288 days (at the time of publishing).
