Burnley have announced the sacking of their manager Sean Dyche after being at the club for 10 years.
The club is struggling in the Premier League and are currently on 18th position on the table. Burnley is four points away from the safe zone and only eight matches are remaining.
The Burnley club chairman Alan Pace said about Sean Dyche in a statement: “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.”
“Under-23s coach Mike Jackson, assisted by Academy Director Paul Jenkins, Under-23s goalkeeping coach Connor King and Club Captain Ben Mee have been asked to take charge of the team for Sunday’s game with West Ham United.”
“The process of replacing Sean has begun and further announcements will be made to supporters in due course.”
