Sean Dyche Has Fans 'In This Country' Behind Him In Jurgen Klopp Row

Sean Dyche Has Fans 'In This Country' Behind Him In Jurgen Klopp Row
By Balls Team Updated

Burnley's Sean Dyche admitted he has been left "confused" by Jurgen Klopp's criticism of the tackling in last night's Premier League clash at Turf Moor.

With an ankle injury sustained by Joe Gomez the most significant of Liverpool's problems after yesterday's win, the German called for greater protection from what he perceived as Burnley's excessively aggressive approach to tackling.

Bemoaning a lack of protection from the referee, Dyche clearly holds an alternative outlook to his German counterpart.

"I was a bit confused," Dyche stated ahead of Burnley's clash with Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.

"There were some excellent tackles. The only one that was questionable was Bardo's [Phil Bardsley].

"Ben Mee's was a fantastic tackle and I think Gomez realised that.

"We send him our best if there is any injury but it wasn't from a bad tackle."

Determined to defend his own players from any claims of excessive aggression, Sean Dyche continued to counter the arguement Jurgen Klopp presented.

"Of course football managers can question whatever they like," Dyche conceded.

"But I don't think they can reinvent the rules.

"I don't think there's many fans in this country that want to see tackling go out of the game."
