Burnley F.C. Background and Announcement of a new Manager
Burnley Football Club are a professional Football League club based in Burnley, Lancashire. Nicknamed the Clarets, due to the dominant colour of their home shirts, they were founder members of the Football League in 1888.
The colours claret and blue were adopted in 1910 as a tribute to Aston Villa (not West Ham sadly), and these colours hope to represent success as in Aston Villa's success. They've won the FA Cup once in 1914, but since the 2000s have been lingering around in the Championship, unable to truly find a place at the Premier Leagues. They once were promoted in 2009, but were instantly relegated at their 1st season back to the Premier.
Now the Frenchman Laurent Blanc(shown below) has been apppointed as the new manager of Burnley, having previously managed at Bordeaux and the French National Team. Will the 'Le Président' be able to guide Burnley to a successful season, or will Burnley continue to stay in the Championship, only wishing that they can play against the top teams in England?
