Clarets boss insists future is bright
Sean Dyche has reinforced his belief that Burnley are building for a brighter future.
The Clarets go into the two-week international break in the top half of the Championship following Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Blackburn Rovers
And with the play off hopes seemingly extinguished, Dyche has now challenged his players to end the season on a high as he looks to shape the club for a fresh challenge.
He said: “Our main challenge now is to build for the future.
“A lot has gone on behind the scenes and just recently we had come away from what we believe.
“But I know the realities of what we are, what we are looking to achieve and what we can build.
“We are not the real deal, but we are a good side when we are at it and we looked full of energy and endeavour at Blackburn.
“We insist on that and there will be ups and downs on the journey.
“At the end of the day we are building something here and it takes time.
“If you build a house people say it will be done in seven months and it invariably isn’t.
“We are building and it takes time, but there are great signs about the way players are going about their business.
“We want men and leaders here and we are trying to develop them at the moment.
“When changes come in the summer – and there will be changes - we will bring some in because it’s an important part of our club.”
