Sean Dyche acknowledges he might be the last of a dying breed as the Premier League's clear longest-serving manager.

Dyche celebrates his eighth anniversary at Turf Moor next month – whereas none of his rivals have even completed five.

'I think everyone's thirst for change is different now. Culturally we all change a lot more in our lives,' he insists.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has recognised he is the last of a dying breed of football managers 

'I really don't think amazing characters like Arsene (Wenger) and Sir Alex (Ferguson) are going to still be around.

'Managing directors and CEOs I speak to in business often say every three to five years, change the staff or change the manager.

'There is a general rule of thumb, or certainly a suggestion, that's what is needed. In our case, we haven't changed either.

'What we have done is build a way of working that is appropriate and enjoyable for the people that count, the staff and players.'

Dyche's belief will only strengthen the suspicion that his time at Turf Moor may be coming towards the end of its natural shelf life.
