In what can be termed as the most surprising development in the ongoing premier league season, the longest serving manager in the league has been sacked after Burnley announced that they have parted ways with Sean Dyche in the wake of the relegation dogfight.
Considering Dyche’s track record of helping Burnley survive in the league since their promotion, the decision of the board to fire him at this stage of the season is a big surprise and the future of the club will now be under harsh uncertainties.
With Burnley sitting 18th on the log, four points adrift of Everton and with eight games to play in the league season, Burnley have probably worsened their own situation with the introduction of instability, where do they go from here?
"Firstly, we would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Sean and his staff for their achievements at the club over the last decade," club chairman Alan Pace said in a statement.
Burnley have always been a low budget transfer club and it will now be seen who will be the long term manager after the weekend.
