Thomas Frank has publicly shown his respect for Sean Dyche.
During Brentford’s pre-match press conference, the Bees manager admitted that he is ‘convinced’ that Everton would improve under Dyche.
Frank has established himself as one of the Premier League’s greatest managers after guiding Brentford to promotion and then to a European place in only their second season in the top tier.
Many experts believe Brentford will easily defeat the Toffees this Saturday, despite the visitors just earning up one point in their first five games.
However, Frank has suggested that their match won’t be as easy as others think and has heaped praise on his Everton counterpart.
“Sean Dyche is very experienced,” Dyche said. He’s a very good manager and I like him as a person. “He’s not shaken, he believes in what he’s doing. I am convinced that he’ll find a way. Looking at performances, it looks like they are still in a fine place.”
Will Sean Dyche get his chance at Everton?
Sean Dyche has come under increasing pressure this month, with the club sit in 18th place in the Premier League.
However, the Toffees would have to cough up £4m to sack Dyche and could instead keep hold of him until at least the takeover is completed.
This means the former Burnley manager could now be given the opportunity to improve results, like Frank has claimed.
Everton will travel to the Brentford Community Stadium on Saturday evening, before taking on Luton Town and Bournemouth. Their upcoming matches could already be six-pointers, while fans will be praying they can pick up some form before October’s Merseyside derby.
