Dyche bemoans missed chances as Burnley dumped out of Europa League

It was a proud Burnley boss Sean Dyche who faced BT Sport after his team exited the Europa League 4-2 on aggregate after being held 1-1 at Turf Moor by Olympiakos.

The Clarets created enough chances to have scored the two goals necessary to progress to the group stages of the competition, but a mixture of poor finishing and desperate defending meant their late equaliser was merely a consolation after 52 years out of the European arena.

"I thought we dominated the game and dominated chances. The biggest bug bear is you've got to take your chances. We created enough chances.

"I wanted our team to get back to their identify and I feel that clearly happened today. No disappointments, just learning. We were effective.

"I thought we had so many chances, it could easily have gone our way. I think the whole club will learn from this. It bodes well for the future but we've got to use it wisely."
