- Dyche wants ‘sweat on the shirt’ and to restore ‘good feeling’
- Rennes winger Kamaldeen Sulemana among club’s targets
Sean Dyche has been confirmed as Everton’s manager, taking over from Frank Lampard with the club joint-bottom of the Premier League. The team have lost 11 of their past 14 matches in all competitions and Dyche faces a daunting start with games at home to Arsenal next Saturday and then away to Liverpool.
Dyche was offered the job on a two-and-a-half-year contract after Everton failed to convince Marcelo Bielsa to take over mid-season. Bielsa said he would join now but would work behind the scenes until the end of the campaign, coaching the under-21s and younger players as the club adapted to his methods. That would have left Everton needing an interim manager and they were not willing to accept that.
