Burnley boss Sean Dyche says he understands pressures of managers like Jose Mourinho

Burnley manager Sean Dyche admitted that he does not wish to be in the shoes of bosses like Jose Mourinho as his side prepares to take on Tottenham Hotspur on Monday night.

Dyche is going into eight years at the helm of Burnley and he has easily become the longest-serving managers in top-flight football.

The 49-year-old believes the days of Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger being bosses for more than a decade has long gone considering the vast changes and pressures on managers in this modern era of football.

“The demands of the clubs he (Mourinho) has been at have been incredibly high – and that’s a different ball game," Dyche said as quoted by FourFourTwo.

“Pep Guardiola asked me the other week if it had been tough and I said, ‘yeah, very’. He said, ‘finance?’ and I said, ‘yeah’, and he said, ‘I don’t have a problem with that’. And I said, ‘Yeah, but you’ve got to win the league, mate’.

“The juggling acts are at different levels. You look at Jose and he’s been at top clubs. It seems there’s a much more limited life span unless you are literally winning all the time over a long period."
