Coyle: Burnley most popular club in world

Burnley boss Owen Coyle has declared his club the most popular in the world!

"We've got good footballers and we've got a good team, but that is allied to the fact that we have got a tremendous atmosphere here - the fans play their part," Coyle said.

"I've got no doubt that they are the best fans in the league.

"You only have to look at the percentage of the population of the town that comes out to support Burnley to tell you that they are.

"I would think that in terms of percentage of population, we are the best supported team in world football.

"That's how important the fans are to the club and the players know that, and try to do everything in their power to give them results. It's very much a collective effort."
