Burnley boss Dyche backing Taylor for England callby Paul Vegas13 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveBurnley boss Sean Dyche says Charlie Taylor can win an England call in the future. The left back only made his first Premier League appearance of the season off the bench against Everton on Saturday. “I think it’s interesting for me, over these years, and now we’re very confidently talking about Burnley players being in the England squad,” Dyche said.“I remember when Tom Heaton got his first call up, it was ‘wow, Burnley haven’t had an England player for however many years’, and now we’re talking about it free and easy, saying, okay, Tom, Keano (Michael Keane), Corky (Jack Cork) got one out of the blue of course, you could argue last season for Westy (Ashley Westwood), just if you were going on form, and performances.“I still think there’s a lot of room and time for Charlie Taylor to go into that thinking, along his development line. Erik’s doing well at the moment, but that doesn’t mean I’ve got a lack of belief in Charlie.“It’s good to say Burnley players are being talked about as freely as we are with the national side, and other international players as well.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Massimiliano Allegri has refused to pin blame on referee Luca Banti after Juventus drew 2-2 at Atalanta, claiming there is “no desire to improve Italian football”.Allegri had to turn to Cristiano Ronaldo – who had been rested for Wednesday’s fixture – to salvage a share of the spoils at Atalanta, with the forward coming on from the bench to head in a late equaliser.Berat Djimsiti’s own-goal had put Juve ahead early on, but Duvan Zapata’s double saw Atalanta take the lead, with Rodrigo Bentancur’s dismissal for a second yellow card having made matters more complicated for Juve.

But Allegri did not single out referee Banti, instead turning attention to Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis, who on Monday criticised the appointment of Paolo Mazzoleni’s for their clash with Inter, suggesting that Serie A officials are under too much pressure.”My patience has run out, but it’s better to talk about the game, I’m not in a good mood,” a frustrated Allegri told Sky Sport Italia.”I don’t talk about referees, Banti officiated well and these things happen. Outside we hear heavy statements from club owners about referees, speaking and moralising.”I’ll leave Banti, who refereed well, aside because it’s not elegant to make these allusions and declarations. I’ll never speak, we need to educate the fans.”But my patience is running out, in Italy we can’t improve with the example set by certain people.2 – Prior to today the last time Juventus conceded two goals in a Serie A game was in MD1 against Chievo.
