Burnley manager Sean Dyche has been rewarded with a new four-and-a-half year contract to remain at Turf Moor until 2022 of June.
Earlier this season, the 46-year-old coach was linked to manage Leicester City and Everton after an outstanding start of the Premier League campaign.
With that, club’s chairman Mike Garlick wants to secure Dyche for the long-term success of Burnley football club as they continue to build the team on and off the pitch.
As of now, the Clarets are in the eight spot of the leagues table standings and it’s the club’s highest achievement since 1975. (Here’s your reference for Soccer Betting Tips)
“We’ve had a great season so far and with that it always comes with speculation about clubs being interested in your manager. Hopefully, again what we’re doing today means we can plan for the future and there’s a big ‘keep-off’ sign there with a four-and-a-half-year contract. Hopefully it’s the signing of the window, or certainly the extension of the window. I think it’s a deal that suits the manager; it suits me as the chairman and the board and, most importantly, suits the club. One thing we have always wanted is a stable club, and Sean signing the contract today means we can build and plan for the future. I think if you can do that, you’ve got a far better chance of success. And – by the way – he has earned it.” Garlick stated
Dyche has been with the club at Turf Moor since 2012 with 97 wins of his 245 games and won two promotions to lead the Clarets from the Championship into the Premier League. (Sign Up now for more updated news and sports event)
Meanwhile, aside from the 46-year-old boss, Burnley announced that his backroom staff of assistant boss Ian Woan and first-team coach Tony Loughan has also put pen to paper on the new deal until 2021/22.
“I am quite young in management terms. I am still learning and still improving, I believe, so for my personal reasons, as well, I think it’s the right place to be. It’s a very good environment and I enjoy it and I enjoy the connection I’ve had with this area. I think we are still moving forwards as a club and that’s important and also I’m aware of some of the challenges. The reality of the club gives me, my staff and the players a good workplace. It’s an honest club, it’s healthy and everyone is on the same page and I have really enjoyed that. I look around football and it’s hard to find and it’s hard to build. We’ve built it and found it, probably in equal measure, and I enjoy that side of it. There’s lots of work to be done, but I’m definitely ‘in’ for the work to be done.” Dyche said in a statement
