BURNLEY winger Aaron Lennon has hailed Turf boss Sean Dyche as one of the best he has worked with.

Lennon has played under the likes of Fabio Capello, Mauricio Pochettino and Roberto Martinez during his international and club career but believes that Dyche belongs in that bracket.

On playing for the Clarets chief, the 30-year-old said: “One of his main qualities is getting everyone together. Everyone at this football club is together and I think that’s definitely down to the manager.

“He made me feel so settled in. He’s given me a lot of freedom in the way I play. He’s been brilliant for me.

“He has a bit of everything. I’ve worked with some really good managers, but I think the gaffer is definitely up there.”

Lennon also believes the Turf team spirit is playing a key part in Burnley's fine season with the Clarets travelling to Watford on Saturday aiming to maintain their grip on seventh spot in the Premier League.

“I think it is the closest-knitted squad I’ve ever seen," he added. "From the moment you step into the football club, it’s a unit.

“Everyone sticks together, everyone gets along and it’s a brilliant atmosphere.

“From the moment I got here the manager, the lads and everyone involved with the club has helped me settle in and I think that’s showing in my performances.

“The way the group is, they make you feel welcome. That’s not just the players, that’s all the staff and that’s just Burnley as a football club.”

Victory for Burnley against the Hornets on Saturday will make it four wins on the bounce for the Clarets and Lennon insists confidence is flowing through the ranks at Turf Moor.

“We’ll be going to Watford to get the three points,” he told the club's official website.

“We’re on good form and we’re picking up some great results so we’re looking forward to it.

“They’ve had some good results. The new manager has come in and you normally get a reaction, which they’ve had, so It will be a difficult game for us, but we’re on a good run of form and we won’t be looking too much into that.

“We’ll be looking at ourselves and going there to get the win.”
