With the recent sacking of Craig Shakespeare and Ronald Koeman, current Burnley boss Sean Dyche is reportedly in the running for both vacant jobs. Slowly but surely he is making a name for himself within the English game, attracting praise off various pundits with Ian Wright being the most recent to speak on record about Sean Dyche’s credentials. Wright spoke about how he believed Dyche would be a good fit for Arsenal, the team Wright supports passionately.

“The fact is would they give Sean Dyche that job?

“In respect to how his team sets up when they’re defending, he’s obviously got acumen – but will he get a job like that? I don’t think he will.

“They’ll probably start touting him for the England job. We’re so bereft of any manager that’s good enough, that can take on the England job. If he carries on like he is he’ll probably be pushed into that role.”

Maybe Arsenal and England is currently out of reach for Sean Dyche, but with vacancies at Leicester and Everton, it is looking increasingly likely that the former Watford manager could be tempted away from Burnley in the near future.

Dyche arrived at Burnley in 2012 after he had been sacked by Watford at the end of the 2011/12 season, a decision that came as a shock. Dyche was well liked by the Watford supporters, an affinity which began during his playing career at the club. After leaving his first managerial role in surprising circumstances, it was Burnley who took the plunge on Dyche. In his first full season in charge, The Clarets gained promotion to the Premier League. After yo-yo-ing to and from the Premier League to the Championship for the next two seasons, Dyche’s fourth campaign at the club saw him guide Burnley to a very respectable 16th place Premier League finish.


The success has continued for Burnley under the 46-year-old and as a result, he is seen as the front-runner for the newly-vacant Everton job following the dismissal of Ronald Koeman. Another job that could tempt Dyche away from the North West is Leicester City, which is a move which would suit the Burnley boss geographically, whose family are still based around Kettering.
