Burnley have confirmed they have sacked manager Sean Dyche from his managerial role after nine-and-a-half years in charge of the English club as they seek to secure the Premier League’s survival with the change. Dyche was the league’s longest-serving manager before his dismissal.
Sean Dyche was hired as Burnley manager in October 2012 as he took over from manager Eddie Howe as the Englishman aimed to guide them to promotion during his time at the club. The 50-year-old manager succeeded in his business by overseeing two successful promotions into the top flight during his time at Turf Moor. The England manager proved his shrewdness by keeping Burnley in the Premier League for several seasons despite their modest budget.
Dyche oversaw 425 games in charge of the club while recording 149 wins, 118 draws and suffering 158 losses. Not only that, he guided his side to seventh place in the 2017-18 campaign, which meant the Clarets were involved in Europa League action the following year. It hasn’t gone to plan for Dyche’s side since then and especially this season as they are embroiled in a relegation battle in which they look unlikely to survive the drop.
Burnley’s hierarchy quickly dismissed Dyche as they aimed to turn things around and Clarets chairman Alan Pace expressed his gratitude to Dyche for his service to the club.
“Firstly, we would like to express our sincere thanks to Sean and his team for their achievements at the club over the past 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,” Pace said on the club’s website.
“However, the results this season have been disappointing and, although it is an incredibly difficult decision, with eight crucial games of the campaign remaining, we believe a change is needed to give the team the best possible chance of winning. maintain his Premier League status. The process of replacing Sean has begun and further announcements will be made to supporters in due course.”
Burnley Football Club can confirm the club have parted ways with manager Sean Dyche, assistant manager Ian Woan, first-team coach Steve Stone and goalkeeping coach Billy Mercer.
