Sean Dyche reveals that he couldn't turn down the chance of becoming Burnley manager following his appointment on Tuesday.

Sean Dyche has revealed that he couldn't turn down the chance to become the new Burnley manager.

The 41-year-old, who had been out of work since being sacked as Watford boss over the summer, was given the job at Turf Moor on Tuesday following the departure of Eddie Howe to Bournemouth.

"I was ready and raring," said Dyche. "Some managers sometimes need a time of reflection and I used that time wisely, of course.

"As people know I've had a spell with the England Under-21s, but I was fresh and ready to go. I didn't need that rest, it just came because sometimes business changes.

"If Burnley Football Club give you a phonecall, the answer's yes in my book. There was no messing around."

Dyche will take charge of the Championship's 14th-placed side for the first time on Saturday when they host Wolverhampton Wanderers.
