Burnley boss Sean Dyche: Was I lucky not to take Everton job...?

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has shrugged off missing out on the Everton job.

Dyche was one of the favourites with bookmakers to become the Dutchman's successor, a job Sam Allardyce subsequently landed.

When asked if he felt he may have dodged a bullet by not landing the Everton job, Dyche said: "There was no bullet to dodge.

"I was here, I said I was going to be here, and I'm still here. It was an outside story. I've had a few of them, in the right way actually, since I've been here.

"This is my 250th game. I'm still here, I'm still working hard, and I still have the fire in my stomach to be successful here and to continue to create an atmosphere and a culture and environment that can be successful. That is my focus."
