‘Players were talking’ – Dyche reveals what happened in dressing room after Newcastle defeat

After suffering a damaging defeat to Newcastle United, Sean Dyche allowed his players to speak for themselves, reports the LiverlpoolEcho.

Everton experienced a dismal second half collapse, conceding three goals in just nine minutes and losing the game at Goodison Park. The outcome was especially disappointing given the game’s promising start, with the home team energized by an electric atmosphere. By the end of the match, Everton had missed yet another chance to boost their push for Premier League survival, with the result also inflicting more damage to their goal difference.

In his post-match comments, Dyche revealed that he didn’t spend much time in the dressing room immediately after the game. Instead, he heard several of his players addressing their teammates from his office at the ground and thought it was appropriate to let them handle it.

Dyche spoke to the media around an hour after the final whistle and was asked if he had spent a long time in the dressing room. He clarified that he actually allowed other individuals to speak to the players in the immediate aftermath.

He said: “A couple of the players were talking, I wasn’t in there very long…they shared a couple of thoughts about the performance and what should change.”

He added: “I could just hear them from my room so I left them to it and then I went in and summarised some of the stuff I heard.”
