Does Sean Dyche still eat earthworms during training?

Never say we don't tackle the big issues here at Dream Team

It’s time to ask football’s big questions.

With the Alexis Sanchez saga rumbling on, Real Madrid in crisis, and Man City’s invincible season up in smoke, it’s only right we get to the bottom of whether or not Sean Dyche is still eating earthworms.

Worms play havoc with the human throat

The allegation that the gruff Burnley boss was ever into worms as a snack comes from former Denmark international Soren Anderson.

Anderson was team-mates with Dyche for approximately a year at Bristol City from 1998 – 1999.

Speaking on a Danish football podcast, he said: “Every time he [Dyche] found an earthworm at training, he’d eat it.

“It was so disgusting. I’ve never seen anything like it. It was very weird.

“He was a good player and I got along with him, but that was just weird.”

Good source of protein, to be fair.

So, do we think Dyche has changed his eating habits now that he’s a respected Premier League manager?

Or is he still tucking into worms on the training ground in between bellows about defensive shape?

Strangely, Burnley have not replied to our enquiry into the matter, but you’ll be the first to know if they do.

Now, who’s for lunch?
