Dyche feels Burnley can financially handle coronavirus suspension

Burnley boss Sean Dyche feels the club can financially handle the current coronavirus suspension.

Dyche has provided a positive update for fans of the club.

"We are in different shape ourselves compared to a lot of others as the club has been run balanced for a number of years," he said.

"We're in a strong position financially and we don't have to do anything at this moment in time.

"When you look at the facts and figures of the club, we're in a very strong position and the chairman wanted to make sure we didn't furlough."

Dyche admits he wants to see the season finish.

"I think we'd like the season to be finished," he began. "The virus has had a massive effect, we all know that, but if football can play its part in giving something back, we should try and look for that first.

"Even behind closed doors it can be beamed out, and that can be a good thing. We'd like to finish the season ideally, and then it gives yourselves a chance to remodel for next season knowing that the previous season had finished.

"Ideally we want to get it done, but health has to come first, we all know that."
