Sean Dyche Shares What Farhad Moshiri Messaged Him after Steering Everton to Survival

Everton manager Sean Dyche has revealed that communication with majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri remained consistent after securing Premier League safety for the Toffees. This comes after a dramatic turnaround that saw Everton win three consecutive home games, including a derby victory against Liverpool.

“Just the same as he always does,” Dyche said when asked about contact with Moshiri. “He always messages and it was just to say fantastic outcome, it’s been the same ever since I have known him.”

Despite the positive results, Dyche acknowledged the challenges ahead for Everton, particularly regarding their financial situation.

“The local feeling seems to be, ‘that’s it, it’s solved,’” Dyche stated. “It’s not, there’s loads to do. Ever since I have been here I have tried to bring the reality – what I call the ‘truth line’ – to every club. There is still a truth to the situation that this club is not where it was financially three or four years ago.”

Dyche also addressed his reputation as a “fire-fighter” manager who thrives in difficult situations.

“I arguably wouldn’t have got this job if it was all rosy,” he admitted bluntly. “I am not doing myself down. I imagine they would have wanted a more fashionista manager. What am I going to do, cry about it?”

The former Burnley boss emphasized the need for a long-term rebuilding process.

“It is a building process and it is a very difficult building process for me because I am picking up the bits of others and trying to deal with points deductions and all sorts,” Dyche explained. “That’s the job in hand, it changed radically from the job I was sold. There was a massive shift in the goalposts.”

Despite the challenges, Dyche remains committed to the task at hand.

“I can only do my bit to make it a better place,” he concluded. “I am trying to be authentic. It is easier to tell the truth when you are winning than when not winning.”
