Powell clashed with home fans after a game which saw Burnley's Kieran Trippier sent off for deliberate handball just 15 minutes in.

Johnnie Jackson's penalty was saved, but the visitors won the game thanks to a second-half Danny Haynes goal.

Powell said: "There was a lot of industrial language and we know that that happens at games from the fans to me and my players, I responded and there were some choice words but I won't elaborate on it because it is gone now.

"Tensions and emotions run high and I understand that but of course if they feel my language was wrong then I feel it was two-fold. I shook a supporters hand at the end and we move on."

Of the game he said: "It's a real tough place to come and they have been doing very well at home since Sean Dyche came in so we knew it would be a tough game.

"We've come away from a hard-fought game, with some contentious issues, and got the three points which you have got to do in the Championship because it is quite an unforgiving league.

"It was a well-worked goal and when we had to be professional and see the game out I thought we did that and we got the got the clean sheet which was pleasing."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
