That’s awkward! Sean Dyche is named as Burnley’s manager on the team sheet for their defeat against Tottenham… despite being sacked over FOUR WEEKS ago by the Premier League club
- Sean Dyche was sacked by Burnley last month after over nine years at the club
- However, his name was on the teamsheet for their game against Tottenham
- Burnley went on to lose the match, leaving them in danger of being relegated
Sean Dyche was named as Burnley’s manager on a matchday teamsheet ahead of their clash against Tottenham on Sunday, despite being dismissed by the Clarets last month.
The 50-year-old spent over nine years at Turf Moor, but was shown the exit door on April 16, with the team in the bottom three.
However, this news seemed to be forgotten for Sunday’s lunchtime kick-off as his name appeared on the teamsheet prior to their 1-0 defeat against Spurs.

Mike Jackson is actually in charge of Burnley on an interim basis until the end of the season

Burnley are actually currently managed by Mike Jackson, who is in charge on an interim basis until the end of the season.
He is being assisted by centre-back Ben Mee – the 32-year-old has taken on a player-coach role on a temporary basis.

Jackson’s appointment has led to an upturn in form for Burnley as they won three of their opening four matches with him at the helm.
This led to Jackson being named the Premier League’s Manager of the Month in April.
The Lancashire outfit have lost their last two top-flight games, though, against Aston Villa and Tottenham, leaving their survival hopes hanging in the balance.
Burnley find themselves outside the relegation zone on goal difference, with two games of their campaign remaining.
