Everton confirm Sean Dyche as their new manager

Everton have confirmed the appointment of Sean Dyche as their new permanent manager. 

The 51-year-old has signed a two-and-a-half year contract at Goodison Park. 

The English boss has replaced Frank Lampard who was dismissed earlier this month.

Lampard secured them Premier League survival last season but a disappointing 2022-23 campaign saw his side dropping into the relegation zone. 

The club hierarchy decided to sack him after the 2-0 loss at West Ham United. 

Now Dyche has taken the difficult job of keeping the Merseyside club  in the English top-flight. 

He was previously the manager of Burnley where he did an excellent job. 

The 51-year-old twice led the Clarets to promotion to the top-flight, finishing second in the Championship in 2013-14 and winning the trophy in 2015-16. He also led the Lancashire outfit to a seventh-placed finish in 2017-18. 

Need reinforcements 

Everton look in desperate need of reinforcements to boost their chances of survival in the top-flight. 

However, their Premier League transfers in January show they haven’t made any signings yet. 

The Toffees are said to be struggling with financial issues. But they have recently sold Anthony Gordon to Newcastle United in a deal worth up to £45 million. 

That transfer money could help fund a few signings for the Merseyside outfit. 

They are currently 19th in the league standings, with only 15 points from 20 matches.
