O'Driscoll tipped for Clarets post

12 Jan 2010 - 10:11:27

Doncaster Rovers have warned Burnley that Sean O'Driscoll will not come cheap should they wish to appoint him as their new manager.

The 52-year-old has emerged as a surprise frontrunner for the managerial vacancy at Turf Moor following the departure of Owen Coyle to Bolton Wanderers.

O'Driscoll is reported to have been interviewed by the Clarets after forging a reputation for playing attractive football in the Championship.

But Rovers chairman John Ryan has warned the Premier League club that they will face a fight to lure the former Bournemouth boss away from the Keepmoat Stadium.

"We don't want to lose Sean, but should it happen we shall be seeking serious compensation," he told The Sun.

"We've not been called 'the Arsenal of the Championship' for nothing. That's down to Sean."

Brian Laws has also been mentioned as a possible candidate despite his recent sacking by Sheffield Wednesday.
