Sean Dyche reponds to Kieran Trippier's 'Ginger Mourinho' message at World Darts Championship
Last Updated: 28/12/17 4:25pm
Sean Dyche has admitted Kieran Trippier warned him by text before the Tottenham defender praised the Burnley manager with some light-hearted humour at the World Darts Championship.
Trippier was in attendance at Alexandra Palace on Wednesday evening and the former defender appeared to enjoy his night at the darts, alongside Tottenham teammates Danny Rose and Dele Alli.
The England international, a former player under Dyche at Turf Moor, revealed a sign which read 'Ginger Mourinho = Sean Dyche'.
When asked what he made of Trippier's message on Thursday, Dyche said: "He (Trippier) used to call me that in training all the time.
"I don't know where he got it from - that's the kind of connection I have with my players or ex-players in this case."
