Sean Dyche hit back at talkSPORT’s Ian Abrahams after he suggested Burnley’s performance against Crystal Palace was ‘unacceptable’.
The Clarets’ torrid campaign took a turn for the worse after goals from James McArthur and Andros Townsend secured a dominant win for Palace.
Dyche’s men looked devoid of confidence and relegation is beginning to appear a distinct possibility despite their miraculous seventh-place finish last season.
However, the Burnley boss was in a defiant mood after the game, and defended his players when ‘the Moose’ described their display as ‘unacceptable.’
“No, absolutely not,” Dyche retaliated. “That’s your word and you often like words like that. That’s your job, by the way.
“But no, we were far from unacceptable. These boys have done miracles in the six years I’ve been here and these boys have made this club an unbelievably wealthy club, recognised in world football.
“So I’ve got great pride in these lads and how they’ve gone about it. This is a really tough time for them. They’ve got absolute support from me and the staff and from each other.
“That’s what it takes to be a real unit and a real team. Anyone can be a team when things are going well. It’s not easy to be a real team when things are not so good.”
Abrahams insisted he meant no disrespect with the question, to which Dyche responded: “It’s alright, it’s your job. It’s no problem, I’m used to it.”
