777 Partners chief Johannes Spors has revealed what was said when he met Everton boss Sean Dyche for a meeting at Finch Farm.

In an exclusive interview with The Telegraph (15 December), Spors revealed he has already met the manager alongside Mladen Sormaz to discuss what the future holds with their takeover of the club currently pending.

And Spors confirmed that he is happy with the job Dyche is currently doing at Goodison Park, and shared what Dyche said to him in the meeting when asked directly if they had met.


“Yes, I have. He’s brilliant,” he said.

“The whole Finch Farm training ground is great, the people I’ve met are great and to meet Sean Dyche was good. I met him in a longer meeting some time ago and around the games.

“It’s not only myself, but also Mladen [Sormaz] and some other guys. Sean is doing a really good job, it’s fantastic.

“He said after the Chelsea game: ‘This is why I do this job – to help players and see players developing.’ Even some weeks ago when he explained what he sees in the players and what he thinks will be possible, this is so visible on the pitch.

“This is what you want. You want the club to punch above their weight in games and to maximise the outcome from the possibilities you have, and this is currently what you have.”


There were definitely some doubtful people around when Dyche got the job to replace Frank Lampard, but most people accepted he was the best man for the job when it came to stopping us getting relegated.

But there were question marks about whether he would be able to take us beyond that, but he has answered those critics in the best possible way this season.


He has built a squad in his image in just two transfer windows, has made us a lot more difficult to beat and also far better going forward without relying so heavily on just one or two players.

Most people would likely agree now that Dyche was actually the absolute perfect fit for the club in the position that we were in at the time, and for the direction of travel we’re going in.

777 Partners may well be coming in to take over the club, but if they have any sense they’ll leave Dyche to his own devices and not look to replace him any time soon.
