Burnley on Friday sacked one of the longest-serving managers in the Premier League, Sean Dyche, on the eve of their weekend clash with West Ham.

The 50-year-old manager has been at the helms of affair since 2012.

However, Dyche seems to be running out of ideas on how to change the misfortune of the club, which is seemingly heading in a new direction as the league winds down.

A statement on the club's website read: "Burnley Football Club can confirm the Club has parted company with manager Sean Dyche, assistant manager Ian Woan, first-team coach Steve Stone and goalkeeping coach Billy Mercer.

"Dyche was the longest-serving manager in the Premier League, having been in charge of the Clarets for nine-and-a-half years, overseeing a period which will go down as one of the most successful in the Club’s history.

"During this time, the team was promoted twice from the Championship, achieved two top-half Premier League finishes and qualified for Europe for the first time in 51 years."

Burnley's Chairman, added: “Firstly, we would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Sean and his staff for their achievements at the Club over the last decade. During his time at Turf Moor, Sean has been a credit both on and off the pitch, respected by players, staff, supporters, and the wider football community."
