Championship news: Highly-rated manager signs new contract

first_img1 Burnley manager Sean Dyche has committed his future to the club by signing a new deal at Turf Moor. The highly-rated boss, 44, is the 11th longest-serving manager in the country having replaced Eddie Howe in October 2012. The former Watford boss guided the Clarets to the Premier League in 2014 and he has since been linked with a return to the top-flight when vacancies arise. Dyche told the club’s website: “The chairman, the directors and myself have been discussing the future of the club now for a while, because that comes first. “On the back of that there is my role and we agreed a short while ago to start talks on a new contract. I am pleased to say that is now agreed. It’s an improved situation for myself and hopefully the club as well.“We have been building something here for the last three-and-a-half years and there have been lots of good times and lots of changes. “We want more good times here and I want to be a part of that. I made it clear in the summer when there were lots of questions, and I make it clear again now that my view is to continue to try and improve and build what we do at this football club. “There are no guarantees forever because we all know the complexities of this game, but it’s safe to say that I am signing for a good reason and that is to be here and do well.” Burnley were relegated back to the Championship last May but they look on course for an instant return, as they sit third in the second tier, just four points off leaders Hull.Chairman Mike Garlick added: “I am absolutely delighted at this news. “We have been speaking about this for a few months and it was never in doubt and quite simple to get done. “I think what we have currently is the best manager in the Championship and what Sean and I really want is for him to be the best manager in the Premier League.” Sean Dyche last_img read more
