Former Burnley player now manager of a national team

Post by mikaelj » Mon Mar 29, 2021 1:22 pm

Alright let us see who can answer this first.

Which former Burnley player (played 60 games) is currently manager of a national team and achieved a 1-1 draw in the world cup qualifiers this weekend....

There’s something wrong with the question because there doesn’t appear to be an ex Burnley player that has played exactly 60 games for us.

Sounds right. Wikipedia has it as 80 claret appearances until you drill into his own Wikipedia which then says 60

Nice place to do a bit of footy coaching. It’s near St Kitts.

The question is accurate. He made 60 league appearances for us, 23 in 1982/83 & 37 in 1983/84.

It was pretty obvious when further reference was made to FA Cup, League Cup and other appearances.
