Dyche: We're In Fantastic Shape

31 March 2017

Sean Dyche insists the club is in “fantastic shape” following this week’s financial results.

The Clarets this week announced a £3.7m loss for the year ending June 2016, following on from a £30.1m profit achieved during his first Premier League season in charge of the Clarets.

That deficit was offset by over £11m of bonuses paid for a second promotion and the completion of a new £10.6m Barnfield Training Centre, which opened its doors to the first team squad this week.

In addition, a new Clarets Store and club offices have been built at Turf Moor.

And with the squad bolstered this season by three record signings, Dyche admitted he was proud of the way the club has managed to balance the books and still achieve top flight football.

He said: “When you look at some of the horror stories from teams who came out of the Premier League and the trouble they have got into, numbers wise, it does really go to show that the planning of the club is on a really sound financial footing.

“Of course, as manager, I want to stretch that and we have done this year, but not to the point of being broken.

“Fans only see out on the pitch, I understand that, but the overall health of the club has never been better and I think that was shown in the latest figures, backed by even bigger figures from being back in the Premier League.

“So, there’s a really healthy future for the club, I think, both on and off the pitch and we’re in fantastic shape.”

Dyche added: “When you look at the bigger picture and the way it’s been managed, right the way through the Board of Directors to the Chief Executive and into myself, the staff and the players and the fans.

“I am really proud that there is that alignment between everyone to understand where the realities of Burnley Football Club are.

“I look across this world of football, particularly in England and there are some mad stories out there and I’m pleased to say we are not one of them.

“We are a club that says: ‘this is what we are, but here’s the positive side of that and it’s all show’.

“There is a good balance to what we are doing and what’s achievable and that journey continues.

“It’s easy sometimes to look and judge everything on the next three points and then the next three, but and I am as guilty as anyone.

"Now and again you have to just take a step back and say hang on, this is quite something.”
