Sean Dyche Officially Our New Manager

Sean Dyche Officially Our New Manager

Sean Dyche is now officially our new manager. The 41-year-old has penned a two-and-a-half year contract. He is joined by assistant Ian Woan, who also served as his number two at Watford, and first-team coach Tony Loughlan.

In a joint-statement, co-chairmen John Banaszkiewicz and Mike Garlick said:

"On behalf of the Board of Directors, we are delighted to welcome our new manager Sean Dyche to Burnley Football Club.

"Sean was the outstanding candidate following an extensive and structured interviewing process to find the right manager to fit in with our vision for the club.

"He is a natural leader with real presence who did a marvellous job at Watford last season in his first managerial role at a club with its roots firmly in the community.

"His commitment to a very strong and successful youth system was clear at a club with close parallels to our own and Sean is especially keen to develop stronger links between Burnley Football Club and the local community.

"These attributes, complemented by a fantastic ability to maximize resources in taking Watford to their highest position since relegation from the Premier League in 2008, make us confident Sean is the right man to take this club forward.

"As a player he won four promotions with four clubs as a player and captain. He has since shown the passion, hunger and loyalty to succeed in management and has an all-round understanding of how a club is run, from youth football to first team affairs.

"Sean also has international experience on his impressive CV, working alongside Stuart Pearce with the England Under-21 squad and this very much puts him in tune with our ambitions to further develop our scouting and youth academy operations.

"Here at Burnley Football Club we feel we have great talent in the squad that Sean can now harness and translate into more consistent results.

"In closing, and on behalf of everyone connected with Burnley Football Club, the Board of Directors would like to place on record our thanks to Terry Pashley and his coaching team, who have stepped in and done a fantastic job with the first team in the last two weeks.

"Now, a new chapter is about to unfold at Turf Moor and we are confident that everyone will offer Sean their full support and show him what this great football club is all about."

Welcome aboard, Sean! Now is the time for all Clarets fans to get behind our new manager and put aside any doubts or personal preferences. I know I will!!

haha - I had a similar thought in the car TC. I am quite happy with this appointment. Did a good job at Watford. Is clearly a leader. I would also expect him to have good contacts in the game and his time with the U21s may help us to attract some of the young fringe players at Premier League clubs having loan spells with us ( Ie. Craig Dawson)? Welcome Sean!

I have to say he wasn't my first choice, but after having a good look around, he seems to have the potential to be a good manager. He did pretty well at Watford under the circumstances, and he seems to be a pretty genuine guy who appears to know what he's talking about. We don't have much to judge him on to be fair, with him only having one season in management, but I really hope he get's off to a good start and succeeds. There's nothing to suggest he won't. I will absolutely back him all the way.
