Sean Dyche promised to keep fighting for Burnley but stopped short of committing his long-term future to the club after overseeing a 1-0 win over Watford. Before the game, the club continued a strong response to the ‘White Lives Matter’ banner flown over their 5-0 defeat at Manchester City on Monday as players again took a knee in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, but the focus was also on Dyche after an apparent falling out with the board. A hard-fought victory over Nigel Pearson’s side provided some tonic as Dyche said his players had responded in the right way to events of recent weeks. But asked to put to bed rumours over his own future Dyche, who has two years left on his Turf Moor contract, was more circumspect.
Sean Dyche said “The challenge of managing Burnley has been there all the time I’ve been here, It’s always a challenge in varying ways and I enjoy the challenge. I’ve always said that somewhere down the line one party wants the other one gone or another party comes in. That is not to do with this moment, I’ve been saying that for six out of seven-and-a-half years when I’ve been linked with various situations and I’m still here. I’m out there working hard with this group of players to get results for them, me and the club. I think what it does show is the resilience and mentality of a strong group of players, I think it was a response to a difficult result, a difficult week. There was a lot going on.”
