Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola Are Now Longest-Serving Premier League Managers After Sean Dyche Sack.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Man City manager Pep Guardiola are now Premier League’s longest-serving managers following the SACK of Sean Dyche as Burnley manager.

Burnley announced a shocking decision to part company with manager Sean Dyche, assistant manager Ian Woan, first-team coach Steve Stone and goalkeeping coach Billy Mercer on Good Friday morning via the club's website.

The exit of the ex-Clarets boss bring an end to an era at the Turf Moor having spent close to ten years at the touchline with the club, with Sam Allardyce, Rafa Benitez, Joey Barton all linked to succeed Dyche in the hot-seat.

Dyche '50' who had been in charge since October 2012, leaves the club in real danger of surrendering their Premier League status, with the Clarets sitting in 18th position, and they have just eight matches remaining to avoid being relegated to the Championship next season.

The club's chairman Alan Pace said in a statement: "Sean has been a credit both on and off the pitch, respected by players, staff, supporters, and the wider football community. However, results this season have been disappointing." He added: "We feel a change is needed to give the squad the best possible chance of retaining its Premier League status.
