Sean Dyche tells Jim White if Farhad Moshiri offered him Everton job
Sean Dyche has told Jim White that he was never offered the Everton job despite all the reports in the media saying that he did.
The then Burnley manager was linked with the vacant managerial seat at Goodison Park after Rafa Benitez was sacked.
However, he has gone on record to state that Farhad Moshiri never got in touch with him but he does like the culture of the Toffees.
Dyche said on talkSPORT, “Just to be clear, it was so heavily linked. It was never real.
“I never got [a call from Farhad Moshiri], nobody [from Everton] ever spoke to me about that.
“A proper club, we all know that. People’s club. I think I have a feel for that.”
Dyche may be a successful manager and has been praised by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola but his style of play is not something that the fans would get behind.
The fact there are qualms about Frank Lampard’s philosophy means that things would’ve been a lot tougher had Dyche been at the helm.
Whether he would change his managerial approach at a club that had the money, remains to be seen, but Everton clearly do not.
Thus far, the board is behind Lampard and we think he’s done a decent job given the circumstances he took over in.
Once the takeover goes through, we will see a realistic picture of where the club is currently headed.
That being said, if Lampard cannot stop Everton’s decline on the other side of the World Cup break, things could get a lot tougher for him, but we still do not think Dyche is the answer to it and the club must be more ambitious with their appointments.
