Clarets reject reports over Brian Laws
Wednesday 12 May 2010
Burnley insist Brian Laws' position as manager is "not under threat".
Reports have suggested the Clarets may have been considering replacing Laws, who took over from Owen Coyle in January but could not prevent their relegation from the Barclays Premier League.
However, the club made a statement this morning refuting those claims.
"Contrary to inaccurate local and national media speculation, the Burnley Football Club board of directors wish to make it clear that Brian Laws' position as first team manager is not under threat," said the statement.
"Laws this morning met with club chairman Barry Kilby and operational director Brendan Flood to plan next season's player recruitment and budget, with a view to giving the club the best chance of returning to the Premier League.
"Brian Laws has two years remaining on the contract he signed in January 2010."
