#PremierLeagueStories – #SeanDyche talks about lack of finances at Burnley & frustrating transfer window so far #BurnleyFC

Sean Dyche Burnley
Money proves to be a stumbling block once again for Sean Dyche to strengthen his Burnley squad and that is becoming a frustration for the manager. Despite three key players leaving in the summer in goalkeeper Joe Hart and midfielders Jeff Hendrick and Aaron Lennon, Wolves goalkeeper Will Norris is the only new arrival so far. But despite a thin squad, Burnley doesn’t yet seem any nearer landing any of their targets.

Sean Dyche said “The main difficulty is finance, it has always been difficult here, It’s a challenge, we know that, the group needs reinforcements as we’ve lost players at the end of lockdown, good players who have served the club well. We are looking but it is not an easy situation when you are looking at the finances. We have done well in bringing in players who can challenge what we have here or we can mould into what we do here as well as what you would probably recognise as starters. We have found a way of making it work, the challenge is getting harder each season. It’s always a question mark. We don’t do budgets, I don’t know what the budget is, I’ve never had a budget here in eight years. We’ll just have to wait and see how far we can push it, Doing business early costs a lot of money and this club historically has not been in a situation where it wants to do that. That’s been well documented for nearly eight years. It’s not a new challenge, but it is a challenge because we’re not getting the time to work with the players and integrate them. That’s the point where it goes out of my hands. I have spoken about the guidelines here before and they’re pretty tough. There’s a way the chairman and the board want the club to run. I understand it, I’ve been here a long time and I’ve spoken about stretching that for two or three seasons now.”
