SEAN Dyche is surprised nobody has done a documentary on football management - and believes if they did people would see the amount of work that goes into the job.

The Clarets chief admits he spends as much of his time dealing with off-pitch issues these days as he does preparing his time for the challenge on the pitch.

And Dyche believes his role at Burnley means he has a say in more issues than some managers at bigger clubs, who are simply told to look after the team while other people take control of recruitment.

"It’s the randomness of a football manager, I’m surprised they haven’t done a documentary on football management," the Turf boss said.

"Fans often get on managers but if they knew the amount of work that goes in I think they will be really, really surprised.

"Some clubs now have built these systems where they'll have a version of this, out and out owner at the top, CEO, day to day, from the CEO, sporting director, scouting and recruitment, youth system, first team - that has changed the role of the manager to purely managing the team.

"At a club like this, its managing a lot of different things, and there are versions of me managing a lot of things out there, but some of the super power concerns are just managing the team.

"Even when you're just managing the team, usually that implies you're at a very big club, and if you are, you're not just managing the team, you're managing the team behind the team, agents, publicists, the bloke who's writing a book, the hairdresser, physio, the babysitter, nanny, au pair, the driver etc.

"If they did a documentary on it, it's non stop."

There's little rest in the summer for Dyche, who returned from a holiday at the end of the season to try and shape his squad for the challenge ahead in 2017/18 as he balances bringing new players in with those on their way out, as well as contract renewals.

"It’s the shifting sands of football. Players move forward, it’s who continually fits, who goes out, who comes in?," he said.

"They're different things that have top be monitored and achieved.

"That’s why the year on year of building, and the points we achieved, it’s a good judgement for us in-house because that development is really important.

"Can you keep moving it forward and keep the players moving forward? I find good value in that.

"It’s monitoring that as you go and figuring out who stays for the longer term and who goes out.

"I’ve always stunned with the weight put on these managers. It’s year on year year and layer upon layer of contracts, new players, coming in and going out, staff changes, fan requirements, shareholders.

"The only thing people really bother with is the pitch and winning the next game.

"All the work about contracts, aligning the club, community work, building a training ground, a new ground, but the only thing that you get measured by is the pitch."
