Coyle told to keep hands off Burnley players
Thursday 29 April 2010
The Burnley chairman Barry Kilby has told Owen Coyle to forget about returning to his former club for players following their relegation.
Kilby says he is under no pressure to sell as the Clarets prepare for life in the Championship after one season in the Premier League. Coyle left Turf Moor in January for Bolton and he is looking to rebuild his squad at the Reebok with their safety secured.
Kilby said: "I want to keep as strong a squad as possible to allow us to challenge again next year. We do not have to sell players. Often in the past we have had to sell to balance the books and that is one big plus when we go into negotiations with players.
"It took us 33 years to get back here and it's been brilliant. So let us look forward and be positive because we know we have another crack at it."
