Dyche Hails "Special" Title Win

7 May 2016

Sean Dyche hailed Burnley’s title winning campaign as special, as they ended the season 23 games unbeaten!

A comprehensive victory at Charlton meant the Clarets won the league by four points from also-promoted Middlesbrough.

And Dyche was a proud man as he reflected on a remarkable campaign.

He said: “I don’t want to over-egg it because it’s amazing what the lads have achieved this season.

“In the first half we were off our game and I had to remind them of a couple of things at half time.

“But in the second half you all saw how well we started and the game was dead then.

“Amazingly we were questioned earlier in the season, by some of our own fans, not many, but to go 23 games unbeaten is pretty special, let me tell you; in any level of football, but particularly in the Championship.

“Twenty three games – and there’s been 20 clean sheets in there! That’s approaching half a season, so there are so many positives this season from the group.

“The players have been exceptional and what I am particularly proud of is there have been players who had to miss out on that.

“I’ve had to take good players and good people out of that and their respect has been through the roof.”
