Lennon Loving Life At Turf Moor

4 April 2018

Aaron Lennon believes the unity of the Clarets’ squad is one of the main reasons behind his seamless transition to life at Turf Moor.

The England winger has established himself as an integral player in Sean Dyche’s squad since his January move from Everton.
And the former Leeds United, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton wide man, who has 349 top-flight appearances to his name, believes there is something special about the atmosphere around Turf Moor. 
He said: “I think it is the closest-knitted squad I’ve ever seen. From the moment you step into the football club, it’s a unit. 
“Everyone sticks together, everyone gets along and it’s a brilliant atmosphere.
“From the moment I got here the manager, the lads and everyone involved with the club has helped me settle in and I think that’s showing in my performances.
“The way the group is, they make you feel welcome. That’s not just the players, that’s all the staff and that’s just Burnley as a football club.”
Lennon, 30, insists clarets boss Sean Dyche deserves a lot of credit for creating such a positive atmosphere, and is enjoying working under him. 
He added: “One of his main qualities is getting everyone together. Everyone at this football club is together and I think that’s definitely down to the manager.
“He made me feel so settled in. He’s given me a lot of freedom in the way I play. He’s been brilliant for me.
“He has a bit of everything. I’ve worked with some really good managers, but I think the gaffer is definitely up there.”
Lennon was again integral to Burnley picking up a sixth away win of the season last weekend at West Bromwich Albion, setting up the opening goal for Ashley Barnes in another eye-catching display.
And the winger is hoping that Burnley can continue their recent form when they face Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday.
“We’ll be going to Watford to get the three points,” he said.
“We’re on good form and we’re picking up some great results so we’re looking forward to it.
“They’ve had some good results. The new manager has come in and you normally get a reaction, which they’ve had, so It will be a difficult game for us, but we’re on a good run of form and we won’t be looking too much into that. 
“We’ll be looking at ourselves and going there to get the win.”
