Coyle shrugs off drop worries

17 June 2009 03:52
Burnley manager Owen Coyle is content that his side can upset the odds and avoid relegation from the Premier League next season. The Clarets have been installed as the bookies' favourites for the drop, but Coyle is not too concerned by that status. He told the club's official website: "We have already been written off by the bookies, but that's something which suits us well. "We love having the underdog tag and we'll do everything we can to retain our Premier League status. "It's a sense of real excitement and it's important we all look forward to the challenge and put our shoulder to the wheel collectively, as we have done from day one since I came here. That's very important for next season. "It's a real learning curve and as a player I was fortunate to be at the top level for a short time with Bolton. "As a manager you want to be involved in the best league in the world and we will give everything we can to stay there."
