Roy Keane hammers Burnley for Sean Dyche sacking as Nathan Collins handball costs dearly

Roy Keane Burnley

A cruel blow.

Roy Keane blasted Burnley for sacking Sean Dyche in April, after the Clarets relegation to the Championship was confirmed on the final day of the season.

Burnley lost to Newcastle at Turf Moor, while Leeds beat Brentford away, meaning Jesse Marsch’s side will be playing Premier League football next season.

A Raphinha penalty put Leeds a goal up at the same time Callum Wilson scored his second of the day to ensure that Burnley were going down.

Leeds United stay up at the expense of Burnley.

The Clarets, however, halved the deficit after a goal from Maxwell Cornet but it was not enough in the end.

But the task was too great for Mike Jackson’s side in the end, as Nathan Collins was punished dearly for a handball that led to a Newcastle penalty.

And speaking after the game, Keane pulled no punches, saying he has ‘no sympathy’ for them after parting ways with Dyche in April.

“Crazy,” he began. “Sean Dyche would have done a good job if he was given the opportunity. He’s been there and done it with his staff.

“When he left, they said there was a reaction and reset.. Rubbish. They have paid a heavy price for it and should have stuck with Dyche. No sympathy for Burnley.”

But for Collins, it is a bitter end to an impressive debut campaign after the Co. Kildare native joined the Turf Moor outfit from Stoke City last summer.

He will be hoping that he can right those wrongs next month for Ireland, ahead of the Uefa Nations League.

Joy for Leeds United.

Although, Leeds’ survival task was not easy against Brentford, despite Burnley losing at home to Newcastle.

With just under 15 minutes to play, the Bees levelled through Sergi Canos, but that was ultimately as good as it got for them.

Rather than pushing on with their lead, Brentford’s threat was stifled by Leeds as Canos was dismissed after a naΓ―ve second yellow card offence.

And Jack Harrison then fired home the latest of late winners for the White’s in London as they managed to salvage their Premier League status.
