Sean Dyche being given the old heave-ho by Burnley after 10 years might seem bonkers, but it isn't half as bonkers as the time he gave a 'team-talk' in the back of a taxi next to a steaming Danny Dyer and Serge from Kasabian.
No, this wasn't a dream I had last night, it actually happened. Honest. Just over a year ago, Dyche appeared as a guest on talkSPORT's Monday morning breakfast show and was blindsided by a pre-recorded message from actor Dyer.
"Morning Sean, Danny Dyer here,” the EastEnders star began. "We once had a random journey in the back of a cab. Can you remember what I asked you to do? Because I can’t, because I was off me nut! Toodle pip!"
Dyche confirmed that the story was legit before going into some much-needed detail.
"It’s a true story, it was a static cab I must say," the gravel-voiced manager explained. "At a mutual friend’s wedding they had a static cab. You went in the back and did a video for the bride and groom.
"Danny and the fella who’s wedding it was, they asked me to do a team talk. So I did a team talk in the back of a cab in someone’s garden to a video screen. I believe the bride and groom have still got the video and have a laugh about it. And yes, he was off of his nut, without a shadow of a doubt!"
TalkSPORT host Laura Woods then asked: "Wasn’t Serge from Kasabian in the back of that taxi as well?"
Dyche replied: "He certainly was!"
Given the job he'd done at Burnley, had Sean Dyche 'earned' a relegation, so to speak? Let us know what you think in the comments section.
