Dyche proud of 'British' Burnley

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is proud to fly the British flag in the Premier League.

Aside from third-choice goalkeeper Alex Cisak, the Clarets' squad is entirely made up of players from the British Isles.

Dyche said: "For many years now there's been this overwhelming desire for technical quality, which is fantastic and it's absolutely needed, but why shouldn't it be backed up by some of the fantastic British qualities?

"I grew up in an era when you work hard, you show desire, you have passion, you have pride, and they're absolute fundamentals for me of my group.

"Good manners is a fundamental of my group. I don't think you'll find many stepping out of line, and if they do they will have to answer to me.

"They are part of the British culture and I think there was a time when that softened in some areas and we lost sight of using that wisely. I think it's still a powerful force.

"If you're mentally tough and you have that resilience, which is a British trait that's been there way beyond me passed down from my parents, grandparents etc, then what a great value to have.

"And I think we have got that real desire as a team to perform and to win."
