Eating worms, smoking exhausts and Mick Hucknall: Sean Dyche’s best press conference moments

Burnley have parted company with Sean Dyche after almost a decade at Turf Moor, the club’s perilous position in the Premier League’s relegation places having led to change.

Dyche has been one of the division’s great characters throughout his time at Burnley, from his distinct gravelly voice to his meat-and-potato team and unapologetic love of 4-4-2.

The longest-serving manager in the Premier League until his exit, we’ve no doubt Dyche’s talents will find a way back into the division in the near future.


The ‘Ginger Mourinho’ has had his fair share of iconic press conferences throughout the years and in tribute to the departing Dyche, we’ve looked back at some of his most memorable.

Don’t interrupt Dyche!

It’s fair to say lockdown took its toll on a lot of us, with Dyche turning to alternative methods to break the boredom and keep himself entertained.

Including his own personal favourite Dyche doppelgänger…

Football often came second when it came to Dyche’s pressers, especially when Christmas cheer surrounded the Burnley boss.

Smoking exhausts and eating gravel, the true secrets behind the dulcet tones of the now former Burnley boss. Who knew?

A frosty response to questioning on his choice of attire after Burnley’s match against Tottenham Hotspur was postponed due to snow, after Dyche was pictured wearing a shirt and a tie with no jacket or a coat.

In truth, you’d expect nothing less.

No frills. No messing. No coat.

One of Dyche’s favourites – on a semi-regular basis – was that Lionel Messi was on his way to Burnley, a tongue-in-cheek joke that poked fun at the Clarets’ comparatively minimal spending.

You can just picture the scenes as Messi’s inch-perfect free-kick is planted square on the forehead of Ben Mee.

Burnley stay up. Turf Moor has a new hero.
