Burnley hero Brian Flynn: Top six must be next target

Burnley hero Brian Flynn believes they need to focus on breaking into the top six.

Flynn was part of the last Clarets side to finish in the top half of the top division in 1974-75, a feat that looks likely to be matched by the class of 2017/18.

“It's the culture from the manager and his ambitions, where he wants to be and what he wants to do," Flynn told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph of the Clarets' success.

“When you get into a situation like that Sean is the guiding light as to where the next step is.

“The next one is the question of where can Burnley go next? What is the next step for them? They've gone from a yo-yo club to a top half Premier League team.

“Why not top six? I think it's achievable. They've broken some important financial barriers recently, they've shattered them as a football club."
