Burnley manager Dyche: No guarantees for next season

Burnley manager Sean Dyche knows his side must improve if they want to avoid relegation this season.

The Clarets clawed themselves out of the relegation zone this season to finish in 15th.

But Dyche knows complacency could end their stay in the top-flight.

"There is no guarantees for the next season, no matter how you finish it," he said.

"Every season will be a challenge for Burnley Football Club in the Premier League, because it's highly unlikely the chairman will give me an open chequebook and tell me to go and get who I want.

"So therefore we continue to develop the side, individuals like Dwight McNeil, Charlie Taylor, and try and add accordingly at the right level that works.

"It all sounds easy, but it's not. Every season is a restart.

"This season was a restart, it doesn't naturally fall into place and we move forward, if it does, great, but it's highly unlikely.

"We have to earn everything we get and always have done."
