Michael Keane: We all wanted to make Burnley history this season

Published on: 18 May 2017

Burnley defender Michael Keane says the players were determined to make history this season.

Sean Dyche's side have become the first Burnley team to stay in the top flight in the Premier League era and the first Clarets side to survive in the highest division since 1974/75.

“We spoke about it in recent months when we were getting close and we wanted to create history," he told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.

“It hadn't been done before, we created history last year by winning the Championship and we wanted to do it again.

“We've been striving for that and you see at the awards, at the home games and the away game at Palace how much it means to the fans and the town.

“Like they said at the awards, football is the biggest thing that goes on in this area.

“It's such a huge achievement for a small town like Burnley to stay in the Premier League and I think all the lads should be really proud of themselves."
