Sean Dyche Not Bitter About Watford Axing

Sean Dyche insists getting the boot from Watford does not rankle - despite seeing them turn into Premier League candidates.

The Burnley boss has a chance to gain some revenge for his summer axe by putting a dent into the third placed Hornet's promotion bid today.

He was shown the door when owners the Pozzo family arrived in June and appointed Gianfranco Zola.

But Dyche is refusing to make his return to Vicarage Road a grudge match.

He said: "There's no bitterness at all. It's bitter in the sense I thought we were building something but it's life. I'm not going to cry, 'Woe is me.'

"It's more callous when you've got three mouths to feed and a missus at home and you're a bricklayer with no work. That seems callous to me.

"But I'm not going to cry as someone said, 'You're not for us, we're going to change things.'"

Watford are pushing for a place in the top flight under Zola thanks to the controversial use of the loan system.

Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway has already had a pop at the Hornets for making make 11 international loan signings.

And Dyche reckons the league will stop his former club from repeating their contentious policy next term.

He said: "I've no problem with the loans. They noticed a loophole.

"There's no rule breaking, they used something that is there. Now it will close up as someone has realised it can be used."
