Dyche beats top managers in Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola, Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho and Claude Puel to become the first Burnley boss to win the award.

After the award he was quoted by The Telegraph saying, "It’s a sign of the players, the staff as well, the players want to go out there and perform.

“And I think it’s more pleasing in a sense that, no so much my first period at Burnley, in my first half season, but after that, we were very strong in the Championship.

“So you might have a strong chance of getting a manager of the month during those periods.

“But in the Premier League, it’s very difficult to win that, so fantastic, on behalf of my staff and the players.

“It takes the group to perform in that manner, and I think the three away games, I'm aware one of them wasn't included, that is a big, big thing in the Premier League, for any club, certainly clubs like ourselves, to win three games away on the trot.

“It’s been a really strong month, with some very good performances. We deserved all three victories in March."
