Burnley have sacked manager Sean Dyche with eight games left of their season in the Premier League.
Burnley Football Club can confirm the Club has parted company with manager Sean Dyche, assistant manager Ian Woan, first-team coach Steve Stone and goalkeeping coach Billy Mercer.

There most recent outing saw them lose 2-0 to Norwich City, who are bottom of the Premier League.
During this time, the team was promoted twice from the Championship, achieved two top-half Premier League finishes and qualified for Europe for the first time in 51 years.
Burnley chairman Alan Pace said it was “an incredibly difficult decision” to part company with Dyche, but “we feel a change is needed”.
Dyche was the longest-serving manager in the Premier League, having been in charge of the Clarets for nine-and-a-half years, overseeing a period which will go down as one of the most successful in the Club’s history.
