Ternent Worried Clarets Could Lose Dyche
Former Clarets manager Stan Ternent has said he is worried about the club he both played for and managed. His fear is that current boss Sean Dyche is doing such a great job at Turf Moor that he will become a target for bigger clubs.
Sean Dyche was actually wanted by Sunderland two years ago but the deal was scuppered when Dick Advocaat made the decision to stay with the Black Cats. Since then, Dyche has led the Clarets to the Championship title and looks on course to keep them in the Premier League this season.
However, Ternent is worried about the future. The man who was in charge at Turf Moor between 1998 and 2004 said, “There’s no doubt clubs will be looking if he continues to do well and Burnley stay up.
He could be a target but it depends on what Sean wants to do as his family is still in Northampton. It also depends on whether Premier League clubs want to appoint a British manager as they keep looking at foreign coaches.
Sometimes keeping a club in the Premier League is as good an achievement as winning a league or a cup. It depends on the resources available and what the realistic goals are, at the moment, Sean is doing a fantastic job at Burnley.”
Burnley face Arsenal at The Emirates today having taken one point on the road so far this season. But Ternent said, “I think they will pick up away points because they’ve got goals in them. Having said that, Arsenal is a hard place to get anything – it’s difficult there just getting the ball!”
