‘Burnley should build a statue of Dyche’ – Thomas Frank

Sean Dyche deserves a statue outside Turf Moor after his dismissal by Burnley, according to Brentford head coach Thomas Frank.

Burnley opted to sack Dyche on Friday, with the announcement a surprise despite the Clarets’ relegation battle – they are 18th in the table and four points adrift of safety.

Dyche’s side had managed just one win from their past seven matches, with five defeats in that streak.

But many have questioned why Burnley parted ways with its manager after nearly a decade-long association.

He guided the Clarets to five straight survivals in the Premier League, having previously followed promotion in his first season with relegation back to the Championship.

Dyche, who led Burnley into Europe for the first time in 51 years, was also the longest-reigning manager in the league but now becomes the 10th different boss to lose his job in the top tier this season.

Frank believes Burnley should celebrate Dyche’s efforts.

He said:

“Their promotion was a success. Then they went down. And got the promotion again.

They’ve been here, six or seven years in the Premier League? It’s remarkable what they’ve done.

“Sean Dyche and his coaching staff, everyone involved with the football club, has done an unbelievable job.

“And Sean Dyche deserves a lot of credit – they should build a statue of him outside Turf Moor.

“I remember there was one year when [you thought], ‘How can he not be Manager of the Year?’. So, I think he did a great job.”

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher labelled the decision a “joke”, as he posted on Twitter: “If you [Burnley] had given him a decent budget, you would never have worried getting relegated.”

“Of all the people in the league, he would have been one of the ones I would have thought most likely to survive anything like this, so I have no idea what’s happened,” Hodgson said.

“Something must have happened because you don’t part company with a manager like Sean Dyche after all the fantastic things he’s done for that club over the last ten years. He has built the club.”

The Arsenal boss said:

“He gave the club an apparent identity, and he’s managed to keep the team.

“With one of the smallest budgets, consistently in the league.

“I wish him the best of luck, and as always with colleagues, it’s sad when you see those decisions.”
