Potter: Dyche won't be out of work for long

Premier League managers have been giving their reaction to Sean Dyche's sacking at Burnley... 

Brighton manager Graham Potter: "Surprised. I feel for a colleague, someone who I have a lot of respect for. It's never nice when someone loses their job of course, but we know these things happen in football. I don't think he'll be out of work for long because the job he did at Burnley was fantastic.

"I think it is part of life. Sean is a big guy, he knows how it is. The reality is there are more people to feel sorry for than Premier League managers but there is a pressure, an expectation.

"Sometimes it is fair, sometimes it is unfair - it goes with the territory. We know that when we go into it. We know when results don't go well you are under pressure, you have got scrutiny. But it is part of the thing you sign up for and you have to deal with it."

Watford manager Roy Hodgson: "Of all the people in the league, he would have been one of the ones I would have thought most likely to survive anything like this so I have no idea what's happened.

"Something must have happened because you don't part company with a manager like Sean Dyche after all the fantastic things he's done for that club over the last 10 years, he has built the club.

"So I was surprised, shocked and disappointed too because I know Sean quite well and I admire him as coach and a manager. I didn't think that something like this would happen to him."
