New boss Dyche makes one big rule change in training for Everton’s survival bid



NEW Everton boss Sean Dyche has already shaken training up.

And to maintain “standards” he’s imposed a radical new rule.

Dyche says his Toffees' squad has 'quality' but must find out how to 'shine'

True to his ten tough years in charge of Burnley, Dyche has “set the tone” in his bid to lift the second-bottom Toffees to Premier League safety.

Frank Lampard’s successor insists his Everton squad has “quality”.

But he believes only adding “sweat” will help it shine”.


That’s why Dyche has brought in a new guideline for training, ahead of Saturday’s home clash with leaders Arsenal.

He’s decided to stamp his mark – by making sure players don’t stamp theirs.

Every player must now wear shin pads and match socks or trousers in training.

Dyche, 51, said: “We’re ready to work… That starts with sweat on the shirt, effort and getting back to some of the basic principles of what Everton has stood for for a long time.

“We want to bring back a good feeling. We need the fans, we need unity and we need everyone aligned. That starts with us as staff and players.


“Our aim is to put out a team that works, that fights and wears the badge with pride.

“There is quality in this squad, but we have to make them shine.”


Dyche aims to make the Toffees as resilient and organised as Burnley became when qualifying for the 2018-19 Europa League.

He said: “We want to change the shape of this club going forward, remodel it in our style, but in a way that we can win.

“That’s the task – make sure we’re building, tactically and technically, giving players organisation, allow them freedom to play, to enjoy their football because it’s brilliant when the team’s playing with a smile. But we’ve got to win.”
