Saying that years of narcissism can scarcely be changed by one match, Sean Dyche today expressed his confidence that he’ll still have an inflated opinion of himself regardless of the result of today’s game.
Speaking to media in his weekly press conference, the Burnley manager revealed that the persistent positive reinforcement coming from within his own head is simply too great to be affected by a poor performance.
“This is the Premier League so you know that you’re going to have good weeks and bad weeks, but you can’t let that stop you from being entitled and believing that you’re a better manager than you actually are. No chance,” said the former Watford coach, adding that contrary to popular belief, defeats only strengthen his deluded self-image.
“Some people have told me that self-reflection is best undertaken after a defeat; I disagree. Results come and go, but they can’t change the inflated and unrealistic manner in which you look at yourself. It’s not my fault that some results don’t reflect my expertise as a top young manager.”
At press time, Dyche insisted that while no one knows what the rest of the season may hold, the honour of being Sean Dyche was worth more than 100 Premier League medals.
