BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche feels that Leeds United boss Marco Bielsa crossed a line in spying on Derby County's training session, admitting it left 'a bad taste'.

But the Clarets chief does feel there are bigger issues to worry about in modern football.

Leeds boss Marco Bielsa revealed in a press conference on Wednesday that he has sent a member of staff to watch every team his side have played this season train.

That included Derby, who they beat last Friday night, when the Rams stopped training after spotting someone watching on, sparking the spy inquiry.

The Football Association and English Football League are now investigating the 'spy saga.'

Asked if he was tempted to follow suit, the Clarets chief said: "Not for me. There are certain ways I believe are correct for myself, not judging others.

“The reality is if someone texts you a team and I’ve heard the team’s this. You’d still go, I’m not sure?

“Players tell their agents, their mate, they’re human.

“I think the biggest thing is that it’s an employee with binoculars and pliers, that’s the bit that leaves a bad taste.

"It's not casual, not word of mouth, not bumping into someone who is a scout and they say ‘so and so is injured’. I think it’s different in that it’s pre-organised, pre-managed and delivered on a regular basis."

Burnley's multi-million pound Barnfield Training Centre borders Gawthorpe Hall in Padiham, a popular spot with dog walkers.

Asked if security was a concern at their own training centre, Dyche said: "Not for that reason. Just common sense security.

"We’re pretty open but we’ve got a gatehouse.

"We’re not going to start worrying about it that much. If people want to go to all that work to see a set piece, it wouldn’t please me but it seems some people are saying it’s expected and normal, so that’s the way it goes."

He added: "I’ve seen people wondering around, but who knows.

"To be thinking that sort of thing has never happened - it’s the detail in it, someone is literally an employee. That’s unusual. Binoculars, unusual, not just someone walking their dog.

“It’s a little more detail. I imagine that’s what Frank Lampard was alluding to. There’s a professional courtesy and behaviour where that would be frowned upon.

“But I was giggling about the noise. Every week people are doing all sorts that shouldn’t be done and allowed. Hardly a squeak.

“I wouldn’t be overjoyed, but in the bigger picture, if that’s the worst thing going on in football?"
