Sean Dyche, Manager of Burnley, has been fired with eight games remaining in the EPL
Burnley have fired manager Sean Dyche with eight games remaining in the Premier League season.
The Clarets are 18th and four points from safety, having lost five of their last six top-flight games.
Dyche had been at Turf Moor since October 2012, making him the Premier League’s longest-serving manager.
Burnley chairman Alan Pace said parting ways with the 50-year-old was “an incredibly difficult decision,” but “we feel a change is needed.”
Dyche had signed a new four-year contract with Burnley until 2025 in September of last year.
During his time at the club, he led them to two Championship promotions and two top-half Premier League finishes.
He also contributed to Burnley’s first European qualification in 51 years by leading them to a commendable seventh place in the Premier League in 2017-18.
The Clarets, on the other hand, have won just four Premier League games this season, the league’s worst win record.
