Everton have appointed Sean Dyche as their new manager following Frank Lampard’s departure, the club announced on Monday.
Lampard was sacked last week after a run of 10 games without a win left Everton 19th on the Premier League table, two points from safety.
Dyche has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract until June 2025 at Goodison Park and is tasked with steering Everton away from the relegation zone.
“It’s an honour to become Everton manager. My staff and I are ready and eager to help get this great club back on track.
“I know about Everton’s passionate fanbase and how precious this club is to them. We’re ready to work and ready to give them what they want. That starts with sweat on the shirt, effort and getting back to some of the basic principles of what Everton Football Club has stood for a long time,” Dyche said.
