Everton have announced the appointment of Sean Dyche as their new coach.
The former Burnley manager signed a two-and-a-half-year contract until June 2025 to replace Frank Lampard.
“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,” Dyche said in a statement.
“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 is expected to help Everton avoid relegation after their poor performances in the Premier League this season.
He has been out of work since April after he was sacked by Burnley following their struggle in the Premier League last season.
