Burnley sacks Sean Dyche after almost a decade in Charge

Burnley has parted ways with manager Sean Dyche after nine-half years in charge at the Premier League Club.

The club sacked Sean Dyche – the longest-serving manager in the Premier League – following the disappointing 2-0 defeat to Norwich last weekend.

Burnley is 18th on the EPL table with 4 points adrift of safety with eight games of the season remaining.

Burnley chairman Alan Pace said in a statement on the club’s official website: 

‘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.

‘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.’
