Burnley winger Lennon: Dyche similar to Pochettino. He has it all

Burnley winger Aaron Lennon is backing manager Sean Dyche to reach the top in the game.

Lennon has been working under Dyche since moving to Burnley from Everton in the January transfer window but he is impressed with what he has seen so far.

"I had worked hard in the past, and other managers who do work you hard. The likes of Pochettino who is similar," he told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.

"The gaffer made it clear to me that every day is 100 per cent. I wouldn't say it was an eye opener, but it's a great mentality.

"For me he is a top top manager. I have only worked for him for five or six weeks but I don't see why (he couldn't reach Pochettino's level). He has all the attributes like some of the top managers I have worked with.

"He as it all. On both sides of it. Not just what he demands and gets from the players but his personal, man-management skills are up there as well. He's a top manager."
