Matej Vydra has been in England since 2012, but has completed only one full season in the Premier League, while spending the remaining time in the lower divisions until the end of last season.
During the 2015/16 campaign, he came close to playing in the top club competition in the country with Watford, but that was blocked after the Hornets allowed him to join Reading on a season-long loan deal.
Burnley signed the 26-year-old from Derby County in the summer window and the forward has explained Clarets manager, Sean Dyche, is of the belief that he will come good because of what he went through in the past.
“When I played Premier League for the first time, it was in my early 20s. As coach Sean Dyche told me now in Burnley, I was a kid among footballers,” Vydra told Sport.cz.
“He firmly believes that after what I went through, and after my progress and I’m ready to show what I can do. If he says I will do well. It’s nice that I have a good relationship with the coach.”
The Czech Republic international has started in only three league matches, while he has come off the bench thrice for Burnley this season. On joining his current club, his immediate task was to be physically ready for the Premier League.
“When I came, he [Dyche] told me right away that I was not physically ready, and gave me a month and a half to catch up,” he explained.
“Communicating with the coach is important, Dyche explains what he wants from me, what I’m doing wrong, and I’m learning. I want to be a different player like last season in Derby, when I was the best scorer of the second division.”
