Everton manager Sean Dyche has issued a response to the “stories” about his future in the dugout at Goodison Park.

The Daily Mail (November 28) reports that the Toffees want to talk to the manager about extending their contract, but their 10-point deduction has pushed back those discussions.The Premier League’s profit and sustainability regulations were broken, and the Merseyside team was punished earlier this month.


“I have no idea where these stories are coming from,” said Dyche, as quoted by journalist Fabrizio Romano on his personal X account (28 November). “I don’t know really, I am cracking on with the team here at Everton.”

Safe for now?

The sackings in the Premier League have certainly eased this season compared to last time out, with several managers losing their jobs in the build-up to Christmas in the last campaign.


But Dyche should have no such worries, with the manager doing a fine job at Goodison Park this season considering the circumstances.

The Toffees dropped from 14th place to 19th place in the Premier League table following their points deduction, and that is where they currently sit after losing 3-0 at home to Manchester United in their first match since the punishment.

However, there is a lot of optimism around Goodison that, with Dyche in charge, relegation may be averted once more this season.

Last season, on the last day of the season, the manager led the Toffees to safety as Everton overcame Bournemouth 1-0 in dramatic circumstances.

The man in the dugout will be hoping for less drama this season, although the Toffees do have an uphill task given how they are currently five points away from safety.
