Dyche sacked as Burnley boss after 10 years at club
Sean Dyche has been sacked as Burnley manager after 10 years with the club battling relegation from the Premier League.

Burnley are currently 18th in the table, four points from safety. They have won just one of their last seven Premier League games, losing 2-0 to fellow relegation strugglers Norwich on Sunday.

U23s coach Mike Jackson, assisted by academy director Paul Jenkins, U23s goalkeeping coach Connor King and club captain Ben Mee have been asked to take charge of the team for Sunday's game with West Ham.

Rushhoursport  understands from sources close to the players that Dyche had not lost the dressing room, despite their predicament.

Dyche is no longer the longest-serving manager in the Premier League, having spent nearly a decade at Burnley. He temporarily joined the England U21 backroom staff in September 2012, soon taking over at Burnley from the departing Eddie Howe in October of the same year.

The 50-year-old led Burnley to two promotions from the Championship, the last coming in the 2015/16 season.
