Burnley sack Sean Dyche – Tenth Premier League casualty of the season
Sean Dyche has now been sacked.
Burnley now looking for their first new manager since October 2012.
Eddie Howe resigned at Turf Moor and Sean Dyche was appointed on 30 October 2012, completing almost a decade in charge until this morning’s shock news.
Burnley won only one of their first 21 Premier League matches this season and have then won three of the last nine that Sean Dyche was in charge for. However, Burnley did lose five of their last six PL games, including that 2-0 loss at Norwich last weekend.
It will still though be a surprise for most people, especially the timing of it. Only five weeks of the season remaining and two days before Burnley play at West Ham.
The Lancashire club currently four points from safety and they have eight games to play.
The full list of Premier League managers to go this season so far:
3 October 2021 – Xisco Munoz (Watford) with Claudio Ranieri announced 4 October 2021.
20 October 2021 – Steve Bruce (Newcastle United) with Eddie Howe announced 8 November 2021.
1 November 2021 – Nuno (Spurs) with Antonio Conte announced 2 November 2021.
6 November 2021 – Daniel Farke (Norwich City) with Dean Smith announced on the 15 November 2021.
7 November 2021 – Dean Smith (Aston Villa) with Steven Gerrard announced on the 11 November 2021.
21 November 2021 – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (Man Utd) with Ralf Rangnick announced on 29 November 2021.
16 January 2022 – Rafa Benitez (Everton) sacked and Frank Lampard announced on 31 January 2022.
24 January 2022 – Claudio Ranieri (Watford) sacked with Roy Hodgson announced on 25 January 2022.
27 February 2022 – Marcelo Bielsa (Leeds) sacked with Jesse Marsch announced on 28 February 2022.
15 April 2022 – Sean Dyche (Burnley) sacked…
So that is ten gone so far this season, two of them from Watford!
In the 2020/21 Premier League season, only four in total lost their jobs during the campaign.
Today’s sacking means that all of the current bottom six in the Premier League have changed managers at least once this season.
