Brown’s future has come under intense scrutiny in recent weeks, but with Adam Pearson set to rejoin the club as its new chairman it seems the manager of three years has won reprieve.
“I will speak to owner Russell Bartlett later and on Sunday, and we will find out more on Monday,” Brown told the BBC. “I expect to be manager of this club in the Premier League next year.”
Pearson, who replaces the recently departed Paul Duffen, was in the stands at Turf Moor yesterday to witness the club’s seventh loss in 11 games.
When asked as to what he thought Pearson would have learned from the game, Brown said, “He would have learned that he has a manager that is still at the helm and one that is willing to put his neck on the line for the cause.
And that he also has a group of players that will do the same for the manager.
The players are disappointed, not at themselves, not at me, maybe at something else.”
Satisfied with his players performances, Brown pulled no punches in his assessment of referee Mike Jones, who he claims granted too many decisions in Burnley’s favour on top of sending Geovanni off for a mistimed challenge.
“I think what went well for us was the commitment of the players, that’s the first thing I will say,” Brown said after the match. â€œ
“Yes decisions have gone against us, probably four in total which tends to lend itself to something else,â€ he concluded.
