Burnley manager Sean Dyche believes his club have had an ‘interesting and positive week’ on and off the field.

The club’s accounts, released a day before the 2-0 win over Wolves, showed Burnley made a record £36million profit in the financial year to June 2018.

Dyche, who marked his 300th game in charge with a vital win, says finances are always part of the discussion at any level of football.

“I think it has been an interesting week and a positive week for different things, in reverse order, obviously, numbers were released for the club,” he said.

“The chairman and board were delighted. Within the detail of that when you look at the breakdown, we’re still within that £58-59 million mark for wages and then big incentives on top.

“We like to think the incentives encourage the team.

“After finishing seventh last season and the incentives put on top of that and then to make £36 million is a positive thing.

“It’s difficult for me at times because I want some of that to keep building, but the club wants to be solid for years to come and it’s showing that.

“On the back of all of that, to go and deliver a performance against a very good side.

“Wolves have had a storming season. We got a big three points, they’ll be really important.

“It was a strong week.”

The Burnley boss understands that money isn’t all made available to him because of the way the club operates.

He added “It’s a slightly different model here. I think we made £22 million last season, before that it was £3 million when we were getting back in the Premier League then £30 million before that.

“In the last four windows, we’re about plus £10 million in spend.

“In a strange way, obviously I want to win games, but if you balance it out it’s strong performance over the seasons.

“We are where we are, and we have to focus on the football.

“It’s been quite clear since I’ve been here, we have to take the numbers seriously and the club want me to do that – to work inside a certain framework, it has its challenges.”

Dyche, along with technical director Mike Rigg, says the club is always looking to progress with their recruitment process.

“Recruitment is a word I always think about. Myself and my staff, we’ve got magic dust,” he added.

“No matter what level you’re working at in football, recruitment is very important and it’s very difficult particularly if your numbers are not as free flowing.

“It’s difficult to get the quality when it’s not guaranteed.

“You want someone to affect your first team in their performances, but also to push others.”
