New Burnley boss Sean Dyche says he won't make radical changes at Turf Moor
5:41pm Tuesday 30th October 2012 in Sport
Ex-Watford boss Sean Dyche insists his decision to join Burnley was instant and stressed he does not plan to change things at the club radically.
Dyche was appointed as the Clarets manager this afternoon and has agreed a two-and-a-half year contract at the club, who have also appointed former Hornets Ian Woan and Tony Loughlan.
The 41-year-old told the club's website: "It feels fantastic to be invited to be the manager of a great club. It didn’t take me any time at all to accept the role, despite popular misconceptions.
"I wasn’t at home having the weekend to think about it. I decided instantly and we got on with things as quickly as we could, but things still need to be put into place contractually.
"I was at Cardiff on Saturday to have a look at that and it was finally great to get out with the players on Tuesday.
"This is a club in some kind of transition after a spell in the Premier League, but it is clearly a club that wants to build and move forward and I desperately want to be a part of that and make sure that we do that."
"We want to stamp our own authority on things and give the players food for thought, but not change radically," Dyche added.
"We love the way the team attacks and we will definitely be using that to our advantage.
"But it’s fair to say I think it needs shoring up a bit and the framework the team uses needs tightening slightly, so we will be looking to effect that and hopefully continue to score a lot of goals. That’s the aim."
