Sam Allardyce

club: Nobody

Prospect: 9/2

The current preferred candidate for this position is Sam Allardyce.

Given the rather low profile of Burnley, it is unlikely that they will be able to attract so many high profile names.

However, with only eight games left to play and making up the four-point difference, the man you’ll probably want to call is Sam Allardyce.

Allardyce is a relegation specialist and has only been dropped from the Premier League once in his career – at the end of 2020/21 with West Bromwich Albion.

Michael Duff

club: Cheltenham Town

Prospect: 10/1

The next candidate for the job is Michael Duff. Duff is a former Burnley player who scored 342 games between 2004 and 2016 with Clarett.

Duff has since taken charge of Cheltenham Town and secured promotion to the Premier League for the first time in its history last season.

How can he adapt quickly to the English Premier League?

Nuno Espirito Santo

club: Nobody

Prospect: 10/1

Currently on the same odds as Duff, Nuno Espirito Santo is probably a better option than the former Burnley star.

Nuno’s stint at Spurs earlier in this campaign surely was a disaster, but the Portuguese has experience in the Premier League and in the Championship. He won promotion with Wolverhampton in 2017/18.

Daniel Farke

club: He left Krasnodar this season

Prospect: 12/1

FARC was in charge of Russia’s Krasnodar team, but left the club on March 2second abbreviation Because of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The Farc could be a decent date for Burnley if they go down as the German has won promotion from the championship twice.

He’s also a much more attack-minded coach than Dyche, so he could be a good pick if Burnley are looking to change up their style of play.

However, FARC’s record in the Premier League is very sad and it is difficult to see him keep Burnley if he takes the job.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

club: Nobody

Prospect: 12/1

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been out of work since he was sacked by Manchester United earlier this year.

And while he had some success with United, the Norwegian didn’t have a stellar relegation record.

Solskjaer took charge of Cardiff in 2014 and led them to relegation in the same season, taking just 30 points from 38 games.

The former Manchester United player also does not have a stellar record in the tournament, having been sacked by Cardiff early in the 2015/16 season after a poor start.
