Sean Dyche's Alleged Argument With John McGinn Is A Thing Of Legend

Sean Dyche may have been sacked as Burnley boss but we'll always have the memories, especially of his alleged argument with John McGinn.


Dyche was surprisingly sacked on Friday morning, with his side having just eight games to save their place in the Premier League.

Whilst the Clarets haven't been having a good season, and recently lost to relegation rivals Norwich City, it seemed like strange timing for a man who has led his team to survival on a number of occasions.


The news also came just a couple of days before a game against West Ham United and with no time for a replacement to be appointed.

It's not only Burnley fans who are likely to miss the 50-year-old, as he often provided plenty of entertainment, with one story of an argument with Aston Villa midfielder McGinn tickling us.

The story came courtesy of an emailer into the Football Ramble podcast, where it was alleged the two men got into some verbals on the sidelines, and you can hear the story in the video below.



It was presenter Luke Moore, not exactly a fan of former Burnley boss, as regular listeners will know, who read out the story on the show last year.

"John McGinn was caught putting in a late challenge on one of Burnley's players. Understandably, Dyche wasn't best pleased," the emailer explained.

"He began barking complaints from the touchline in a way that that only that deep gravelly voice can and John McGinn sharply dismissed Dyche's protest telling him to, 'Shut up.'

"Taken aback by the Scotsman's insolence Dyche shouted over 'Oh, so you've been in the Premier League for one season you think you're a proper big time now, telling me to shut up?'


"Quick as a flash, McGinn cockily replied, "You've been in the Premier League for six seasons, and you're still wearing the same shit coat your big prick."

Seeing as how Dyche had been in charge at Turf Moor for over nine and a half years, there's a chance that the coat was even older than McGinn claimed.

It had done wonders for the former Watford boss who has kept his side in the top tier for the past four years, he did get them relegated in 2015 but they went straight back up, in one of two promotions under him.


In another incident involving the former centre back, he was heard shouting at Raheem Sterling after he felt the Manchester City forward went down too easy.

Dyche exclaimed, "Are you sure Sterling? You spend half your f*cking life on the floor son," during a time when there were no fans in the stands so it was quite easy to pick it up on camera.

It wasn't just on the pitchside that he's given us lots of moments of entertainment down the years, with his brilliant discussion about look alikes also brightening up press conferences.

We hope he's back in work in the Premier League soon enough.
