Lescott upbeat about Dyche appointment


Ex-Everton defender Joleon Lescott reckons that Sean Dyche could turn things around at Goodison Park.

Dyche was confirmed as Frank Lampard's replacement earlier today and Lescott is optimistic about his appointment.

He told Live Score: "Not only does the 51-year-old have Premier League experience, but he's actually worked first-hand with some of the Everton squad in Dwight McNeil, Michael Keane and James Tarkowski.

"That's got to be a huge advantage when it comes to getting your ideas across quickly as a coach, having players in the building that know what you expect and can help their team-mates adjust.

"Some managers would look at Everton's current situation and think 'no thanks'.

"For Dyche, he's been there and done it with Burnley many times before and will not be fazed."
