After 10 years, Sean Dyche sacked by Burnley

Sean Dyche has been fired as manager of Burnley after ten years at Turf Moor.

Following the humiliating 2-0 loss to Norwich last weekend, the club severed ways with the 50-year-old – the Premier League’s longest-serving manager.

Dyche, who has led Burnley since 2012, is leaving with the team fighting to prevent relegation from the Premier League.

With eight games left in the season, the Clarets are five points away from safety. They have only won four league games this season, drew eight, and lost 14.

Burnley chairman Alan Pace conceded it was an ‘extremely painful choice’ to fire Dyche, but added the results had not been satisfactory.

‘First and foremost, we would want to express our heartfelt gratitude to Sean and his colleagues for their contributions to the club over the previous decade,’ Pace said.

‘During his tenure at Turf Moor, Sean has been a credit both on and off the field, appreciated by players, staff, fans, and the broader football community.

‘However, results this season have been disappointing, and although this was a very tough choice to make, with eight critical games left in the season, we believe a change is required to give the side the greatest possible opportunity of keeping its Premier League position.

‘The process of replacing Sean has commenced, and more announcements will be made to supporters in due time.’

Dyche, who played 459 times as a center-back in his playing career, is the tenth Premier League manager to be fired this season. ‘First and foremost, we would want to express our heartfelt gratitude to Sean and his colleagues for their contributions to the club over the previous decade,’ Pace said.
