West Brom: Chris Lepkowski responds as Sean Dyche allegedly spotted at Reading game

West Brom: Chris Lepkowski responds as Sean Dyche allegedly spotted at Reading game -West Bromwich Albion News

Former West Bromwich Albion media head Chris Lepkowski has refuted rumours that Baggies managerial candidate Sean Dyche was allegedly spotted at the club’s Championship clash against Reading this weekend.

The Lowdown: Dyche spotted

On Saturday, Albion returned from the Select Car Leasing Stadium after beating the Royals 2-0 thanks to goals from Matt Phillips and Taylor Gardner-Hickman.

Away from the football, Baggies podcast The Liquidator took to Twitter as they claimed that the former Burnley boss was in attendance. This emerged amid rumours of the 51-year-old’s potential appointment as manager at The Hawthorns.

The Latest: Lepkowski’s response

Lepkowski has now responded to the alleged rumours that Dyche was in attendance at the Reading-West Brom game, citing a strong reason as to why the ex-Burnley boss probably wasn’t at the match.

In a now-deleted tweet, the former Albion media head claimed (via West Brom News): “A word about Dyche supposedly being at Reading v #wba. If he actually was there would surely have been footage or photos of him there by now. Sounds like the Reading commentators were having someone on or mistaken identity.”

The Verdict: Good candidate

Having spent almost a decade in charge at Turf Moor, Dyche has certainly established himself as a Premier League-level manager.

In 425 matches with the Lancashire club, the Clarets averaged 1.34 points per game under the 51-year-old, having incredibly finished seventh in the English top flight in the 2017/18 season.

Dyche for West Brom boss?

Yes

No

No

According to Lepkowski in recent days, Dyche is the Baggies’ number one target to replace Steve Bruce at The Hawthorns.

Despite having one of the most valuable squads in the Championship, West Brom are currently 20th in the table. Therefore, it awaits to be seen as to whether the former Burnley manager would take on that challenge, rather than waiting for a Premier League club to come in for him later down the line.
