Everton hiring former Burnley manager Sean Dyche as Frank Lampard’s heir ‘makes sense for the short-term’, journalist Simon Phillips has told GiveMeSport.

The 51-year-old has emerged as a potential candidate to fill the vacancy at Goodison Park and could be seen as the ideal appointment to keep the Toffees in the Premier League.

Everton news – Sean Dyche

A recent report from The Mirror has claimed that Dyche has re-emerged as the favourite option among the Everton hierarchy after doubts over Marcelo Bielsa’s enthusiasm for the job emerged.

The English tactician is now said to be the front-runner and is expected to have talks with Everton owner Farhad Moshiri and the board today.

Ralph Hasenhuttl, once of Southampton, and West Bromwich Albion boss Carlos Corberan have also been linked with taking over the reins in the blue half of Merseyside.

However, it’s Dyche who is seemingly at the top of Everton’s wish list at this moment in time, and the club’s fanbase will surely be hoping for a quick conclusion to their managerial search.

What has Phillips said about Dyche?

When asked if Dyche would be an ideal option to for Everton to hire in their current state, Phillips disclosed that he ‘definitely’ believes so and that it would be a logical appointment for the ‘here and now’.

In an interview with GMS, he said: “Yeah, definitely, that makes sense for the short-term, for the here and now.

“He is the kind of manager that could come in and have an immediate effect and re-motivate the players and help them survive relegation.”

Would Dyche be a good appointment?

Dyche enjoyed a successful near 10-year stint in charge of Burnley, overseeing two promotions from the Championship in 2013/14 and 2015/26 with one relegation sandwiched in between.

Yet his biggest achievement at Turf Moor was arguably guiding the club to a remarkable seventh-placed finish in the Premier League in 2017/18.

Unfortunately for Dyche, he was ultimately sacked by Burnley last April with the Clarets firmly involved in a relegation fight that they lost, ending a run of six consecutive seasons in the top-flight.

Dyche ended up with a record of 152 victories and 114 draws from his 425 games in charge of Burnley, averaging 1.34 points per game.

Everton, therefore, may be making an astute appointment if they opt to place their trust in Dyche over the coming days.
