Alleged "Touchline Row" Between Sean Dyche And John McGinn Is Absolute Gold
| Last updated
Sean Dyche is one of the Premier League's biggest and best characters but he certainly found his match in John McGinn, according to one story.
This week Dyche has been the talk of the town after the Burnley manager decided to do away with boring press conferences and instead talk about lookalikes.
One reporter tried to suggest that 'this is how far we've fallen' but the former Watford manager wasn't having any of it, going into a long conversation about how enjoyable it was to spot them out in the world.
However it seems banter doesn't always go in the favour of the 49-year-old, as a story that's now gone viral revealed.
An emailer into The Football Ramble podcast claimed to have overheard an exchange between Dyche and Aston Villa midfielder McGinn.
The pair shouted insults back at each other, with the Scotsman ending things with a scathing assessment of the Burnley bosses coat.

McGinn isn't the last person that Dyche has had a 'conversation' with during the game, with a lack of fans helping to make the former Chesterfield player even more recognisable during games.
Back in October, during a loss to Manchester City, Raheem Sterling went down following a challenge, and the Burnley boss wasn't too impressed.
The manager could be heard shouting at the City forward saying, "Are you sure Sterling? You spend half your f*cking life on the floor son."
Unfortunately for the Kettering born manager, Sterling grabbed two in the game, as Pep Guardiola's team won the Carabao Cup tie, and scored again in their league game last week.

Dyche has been in charge of the Turf Moor club since 2012, so the coat might be even older, and has worked wonders for them.
There was rumours about his future at the club before they were bought out at the end of 2020 and, despite being in 17th right now, the new owners aren't likely to try and get rid of him any time soon.
