Coach Marcelo Bielsa, who is being discussed as the next head coach of the Korean national soccer team, rejected Everton’s offer. As a result, former Burnley manager Sean Dyche has emerged as the next candidate to replace him.
Everton have sacked manager Framp Lampard. Everton announced on its official website on the 24th (hereinafter Korean time) that “Director Frank Lampard has resigned as the first team manager today.” Last season, he was put in as Everton’s firefighter and led the team’s dramatic survival, but this season it fell back to 19th, the relegation zone, and it was a predicted dismissal because there was no victory in 10 official competitions (2 draws and 8 losses).
Bielsa was the most likely successor. Bielsa is well known to football fans by the nickname ‘The Madman’. He is also famous for being admired by Pep Guardiola, and in England, he showed off his strength by leading Leeds United to promotion to the Premier League for the first time in 16 years. He has been unemployed since being sacked at Leeds last season, and was recently mentioned as a candidate for the national team’s coaching post, which was recently left by coach Paulo Bento.
But there were also concerns. Britain’s ‘Daily Mail’ said on the 24th, “Coach Bielsa told Everton that ‘the team is too slow’ and he couldn’t play the way he wanted.” It was pointed out that Everton players were not suitable for Bielsa’s intense forward pressure and interpersonal mark.
In the end, the differences of opinion could not be narrowed. The media said on the 27th “
Now, the leading candidate has become director Daichi. Coach Daichi has coached Burnley for nearly 10 years since 2012, and has promoted the team to the Premier League, as well as placing it in 7th place in the 2017-18 season, and has also succeeded in advancing to the European competition. This is why Everton’s next manager is likely, even though he was sacked from Burnley in 2022.
Reporter Sami Mokbel of the ‘Daily Mail’ said in a follow-up report after the breakdown of negotiations with Bielsa was announced, “It is expected that Lampard’s successor will be former Burnley manager Daichi. Everton feel the need for a quick appointment. After a positive and quick meeting, Daichi is looking forward to becoming Everton’s new leader.” 먹튀검증
