Burnley boss Sean Dyche believes there is a greater amount of leeway given to foreign managers arriving in the Premier League when compared to their British counterparts, the BBC has reported.

Dyche is preparing for another crack at England's top flight with Clarets, and is only one of seven-home grown managers in the division, which begins on Saturday.

Out of all the teams to have made permanent appointments for the coming campaign, only Sunderland chose a British coach in David Moyes.

And Dyche, who according to The Daily Mail was briefly linked to the top job at the Stadium of Light earlier in the summer, believes there is a greater level of openness shown to the methods of foreign coaches, citing the training regimes of new Chelsea boss Antonio Conte as a prime example.

According to the BBC, Dyche said: "Antonio Conte came in at Chelsea and he got commended for bringing a hard, fast, new leadership to Chelsea, which involved doing 800m runs, 400m runs and 200m runs.

"I thought that was interesting because if you see us doing that you'd say we're running them round in circles - 'a young English dinosaur manager. Doesn't know what he's doing'."

Dyche believes there's "a bit of spin" when it comes to foreign coaches arriving in the Premier League, adding that many of them may well be carrying inflated reputations.

He continued: "Why do you buy a branded pair of jeans rather than the other pair? Because you think they're better, but they might not be.

"There's a bit of spin. There's still a thirst from the populace for foreign managers and foreign players. They're a bit more snazzy, 'let's see what this Belgian manager or this Argentinian manager can do'."
