Pundit suggests Dyche good enough to take charge of Everton or Newcastle United

The future of Sean Dyche has been a talking point over the last few days due to his impressive start to the season with Burnley.

The Clarets manager has guided the club to sixth in the Premier League table after seven games.

Burnley have only lost once in the top flight so far in the campaign and are now five games unbeaten having secured a 1-1 draw with Liverpool and and victory over Everton.

Dyche managed to keep the club in the elite division last season, eventually ending the 2016-17 campaign in 16th place, six points above the drop.

Given that Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Arsenal are the only clubs above Burnley in the table right now, focus is turning to Dyche’s next step.

There are no indications that the 46-year-old is considering moving on, but former England Under-21 manager Stuart Pearce believes that the ex-Watford boss is good enough for Everton or Newcastle United.

Pearce told talkSPORT:

“Where could he go? If we turn it around and say he can’t go to one of the top five or six clubs. If we are saying that because for some reason we think because he is English he can’t do that – I disagree with that totally. Why can’t he go to Liverpool? Why can’t he go to Everton? Why can’t he go to Newcastle?”

Ronald Koeman is currently in charge of Everton, but is facing increasing pressure due to a handful of unwanted results.

Meanwhile, Rafael Benitez’s future at Newcastle remains in and out of the headlines following his public criticism of the club’s summer transfer activity.
