Burnley boss Dyche: Premier League powers should be shared

Burnley boss Sean Dyche says every club in the Premier League deserves an equal say.

Dyche has stressed power should be shared across the Premier League following the rejection of Project Big Picture.

This morning, he said: "What seems to be the narrative is the top six having most of the decision-making power.

"If you are talking about looking after everyone in the lower leagues, in theory, to look after the Premier League, you share that power.

"So therefore, in possible terms, they should say OK, we want to look after them but we are going to share that power across the league simply because everyone has earned the right to be in the Premier League. We deserve to be there, we've proved that, it's an ongoing challenge but we are there.

"So I think it's fair that everyone should have a say and have agreed moments of who gets what for what reason. And if that can work in the bigger picture - obviously it hasn't worked in this case - then I'm sure everyone will be willing to play their part."

Dyche then added: "It's about finding that balance, finding the right way of doing it in which all parties can buy into it.

"I played in League One and League Two - do I want them to suffer? No I don't. If there can be a way found from all parties, whether it's the Government, the Premier League, or football in general, then I hope somehow a way can be found."
