Dwight McNeil pinching himself after amazing Burnley week

Dwight McNeil admits he's still pinching himself after an amazing week at Burnley.

Within days, the midfielder made his European debut against Olympiacos and then a full Premier League bow in defeat to Manchester United.

“It's been a dream come true, it's happened so fast," McNeil told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.

“I found out on Wednesday I was starting in Europe. With how the first leg went being 3-1 down I didn't expect to be starting, I just expected to be in and around it.

“But I was really happy when I found out I was just starting.

“And then I started against United and I'm a United fan as well, I couldn't believe it, it was another dream come true, but it's about taking it in and taking it on board."
