Sean Dyche has reflected on a “magnificent” 2018 for Burnley Football Club.
The Clarets boss looked back on a year that saw the club achieve their highest league standing since 1974, after finishing an impressive seventh in the Premier League in May.
That deservedly earned the club a place in European competition for only the third time in history and the first time in over half a century.
And despite suffering an agonising early exit from the Europa League at the final qualifying stage, and a hangover from that contributing to a battle to remain in the top flight, Dyche insists fans are right to raise a toast to a calendar year that has been cemented as one of the club’s best ever.
“You can’t help but marvel at the year we’ve just had, even though you equally can’t over think it,” said Dyche.
“The next game is always the most important and I’m good at parking things pretty quickly. Not because they aren’t important, but I think what we achieved here I’ll look back on and enjoy in many years to come.
“It has to be mentioned though and it’s right to, because there have been some magnificent moments this year for this football club.
“At the moment it just looks a little cloudy because of where we are, but that’s the job. It’s now that we have to look after that.”
On behalf of everyone at Burnley Football Club ,we would like to wish all supporters a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.
