Wilder: Dyche speculation ‘absolute nonsense’

“If anyone asked the question after what Sean’s done for Burnley, I’d be saying has that football club done enough for the manager after what he’s done for them?” says Wilder

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder says the notion of Sean Dyche losing his job at Burnley is “absolute nonsense”.

Dyche’s future has come under speculation in recent weeks amid rumours of a boardroom disagreement at Turf Moor, despite the Clarets being in the running for European qualification.

Wilder, who uses Burnley as a blueprint for what the Blades can achieve, is in awe of what Dyche has done and suggests maybe he is too good for the Lancashire club.

“I have said all along I think Burnley are the most talked-about football club in our football club, £120m, £120m, £120m, another one and another one, that is what they have done, the consistency,” Wilder said.

“Brilliant manager, gets the best out of his team, they are a great example for my football club and my players on how to do it.

“If I am sat here in four or five years time a Premier League manager like Sean is, I would be absolutely delighted.

“Absolute nonsense, complete nonsense in terms of anyone questioning what that man does for that football club.

“That is an ignorant, ridiculous opinion. Complete nonsense. I don’t get it.

“Have Burnley gone as far as they can with Sean Dyche or is it the other way around? I think it’s the other way around and if I was him, I would be looking at it like that.

“If anyone asked the question after what Sean’s done for Burnley, I would be saying has that football club done enough for the manager after what he has done for them?”

The Blades have European ambitions of their own as their impressive 3-1 win over Tottenham on Thursday moved them into the Europa League places – above Spurs and Arsenal in the table.

Wilder celebrated the three points against Jose Mourinho’s men by staying up until 4.30am, so he was in a fragile state at his pre-match press conference.

He continues to refuse to talk about any European hopes for his club and is only concentrating on the performances.

“I am just looking for a bit of consistency, we have had two decent performances and we are looking to make it three,” he said.

“If you look at the fixture list, the Premier League – it is where we all wanted to be – Burnley, top 10, Wolves, Chelsea Everton, Leicester, Southampton.

“I am just after performances even though the W bit at the end is important.

“If our team plays like it does, then we will give ourselves an opportunity of competing in this division.”

Wilder will be without John Fleck, John Lundstram and Luke Freeman at Turf Moor, while Jack O’Connell remains a doubt.
