Coyle misses press conference

Published Add your comment

Speculation over the future of Burnley manager Owen Coyle intensified after he missed the press conference following the Clarets' 2-1 FA Cup win at MK Dons.

Coyle is the favourite to replace Gary Megson at Barclays Premier League rivals Bolton but failed to appear in time to answer questions about his future after leaving stadium:mk early.

Burnley officials insisted that Coyle had to leave to catch a scheduled flight at Luton airport to see his family in Scotland and assistant manager Sandy Stewart was left to field questions.

Stewart said: "There is nothing to read into this.

"Owen had to get away to see his family to celebrate the New Year and if he had done the press there is a real danger he would have missed his flight."
