Sean Dyche Had The Perfect Reply To Roy Keane Saying He Could Get In Burnley's Team
Sean Dyche has joked Roy Keane would 'probably' get in Burnley's midfield following his harsh criticism over the weekend.
The Clarets suffered a 4-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon and were outclassed all over the pitch.
Keane provided analysis for Sky Sports and claimed he and his fellow pundits could've played in the game.
Dyche has responded in trademark fashion and told reporters: "He probably could have!

Sean Dyche would eat Keane with a side of gravel- tomas (@stackzinho9) March 1, 2021
"I don't know if you remember him as a player, but he was pretty decent! So it wouldn't surprise me if he could have played out there to be far to him.
"Look, I've got no problem with him questioning us, what we do. It's art of their job. They're pundits for a reason. They have a voice, they have a say.
"I've never been precious about that sort of thing, because everyone has an opinion on football, not just the pundits. It's a strange job, because you constantly have people telling you what you're doing wrong.
"I can't ever remember going into my doctor's and telling him what he was doing wrong, or my lawyer. But as football managers, everyone thinks they can do the job better than us.
"I'm used to that. And I've certainly got no problem with Roy Keane expressing his views."
Former Manchester United captain Keane remarked Burnley looked 'desperate' against a rampant Spurs.
They found themselves 3-0 down in the first half and failed to contain the home side's attack, which included an in-form Gareth Bale.
"It was easy for Spurs today," Keane begun. "I've said it before on their day, a nice, tidy team. Burnley were desperate - I couldn't believe how bad they were.

"I know they were bad last week against West Brom and they were just as bad today.
"Spurs have done well today and I've give them credit over the years, they are a nice team on their day but it was easy today.
"We could've played in that game today. When they come up against the big tests, they usually come up short."
