Sean Dyche believes the Premier League’s restart date gives his players and coaches something to work towards. The Clarets returned to training on May 19 not knowing when they might get the chance to play the final nine games of their campaign. Burnley, 10th in the table, will be back in action on 20th June and Dyche can now fully focus on trying to extend his side’s seven-game unbeaten run which was halted by the coronavirus pandemic in March.
Sean Dyche said “It’s great news that we finally have a proposed start date to resume, The players have all returned to training in good shape, and we have stepped up to stage two of the training protocol with no concerns. But now we have a firm date to get going again, we can work backwards from that point and begin to add some detail into the training. I think we are all looking forward to getting started again. Hopefully, the testing will continue to bring good results to ensure that we can kick-off again. Without the fans in stadiums it won’t be football as we know and love it, But it will still be competitive Premier League football and that is surely better than having no games at all.”
