Burnley boss defiant after relegation

Published Add your comment

Burnley manager Brian Laws is confident the club can make a swift return to the Barclays Premier League after their relegation was confirmed by Sunday's 4-0 defeat at home to Liverpool.

The Clarets failed to defy the odds as their brief flirtation with the top flight lasted just a season. But Laws, who confirmed he would be staying on as manager for the Coca-Cola Championship campaign, believes the players can learn from their experience and come back better for it.

"They have had a taste of what it is about and we will bounce back, that is the important thing," said the former Sheffield Wednesday manager.

"We have a strong side that is capable of bouncing back and we will bounce back next season, we'll certainly be one of the stronger sides.

"While it will hurt going back into the Championship you have to move on and get ready for it because you want to come back and taste the Premier League again.

"We've been planning over the last month or so on what we are doing for next season - plan A or plan B.

"But I'll be here next year and I'm looking forward to bouncing back."
