Burnley-Sean Dyche


Sean Dyche says that Burnley's tight schedule is a privilege

Burnley's coach flew home from Istanbul after the goalless draw of the Europa League with Basaksehir on Thursday and unpacked late on Friday night.

Then Dyche and the Clarets are back on the road to the south coast to face Southampton in their first Premier League game this afternoon to complete a five-day whirlwind.

But Dyche does not want to stop the world and go down.

He is handling the manic schedules of the Euro and the Premier League despite having to compete with an exhausted team, after being hampered by injuries and the lack of window transfer signings.

"We're going to have to dig in the next few weeks until the players start regaining their physical condition"

Dyche said: "That's the new challenge for all of us, people will judge, but this is not the time to judge him for the diluted group we have anyway.

"Injuries, the lack of some players who have the appropriate fitness levels, it is what it is.

"We're going to have to dig in the next few weeks until the players start getting in shape again, this first part will be to get the players to get in shape and do things better with the available players, and then, with luck , strengthen. "

"Our fans certainly wanted this competition, we wanted to be in the competition and the guys have earned the right to be here.

"Then take what comes with that, you take all the challenges too.

"It's probably been the most difficult transfer window I've gone through as a manager.

"Some of the most experienced managers with whom I keep in touch said that it was the worst they have witnessed.

"It's very, very difficult, we're going to have to dig in the next few weeks until the players get back in shape."

Dyche is clearly frustrated because he could only bring Ben Gibson, Matej Vydra and Joe Hart to refresh his team.

But his European adventure and that of Burnley is a bright spot at the beginning of the season.
