Dyche insists Burnley must embrace Europa League

Burnley boss Sean Dyche says it's crucial everyone at the club embraces their Europa League chance.

Dyche is preparing to kickoff their season against Aberdeen for their Europa League qualifier.

“Once you get there [Europa League] it's doom and gloom because of the challenge of the extra games," he said. “But at a club like this it has to be ­recognised as a massive jump.

“Last season not many people gave us a chance of finishing seventh. But we earned what we achieved. We got the points on the board. Now it's about taking on the ­challenge and not looking too far beyond.

“The Premier League is still the driving force but the Europa League has to be recognised as a badge of honour for a club like Burnley.

“But we know it will be tough against Aberdeen. They're a decent side and a good test."
