Former Crystal Palace ace Darren Ambrose has tipped Sean Dyche to manage the Eagles and has talked about the Englishman’s suitability to the club.
This came after Ambrose appeared as a guest on TalkSport and talked about the managerial situation at Selhurst Park. Ambrose believes that the club is in need of an overhaul and that would demand a strong personality to come in and do the job. He made it clear that Dyche is someone who is well capable of succeeding Roy Hodgson.
Hodgson’s current deal at Palace runs out in the summer and it has been previously reported that the Eagles have already identified potential replacements for the veteran. While one of those names is Dyche, the others happen to be Eddie Howe and Steve Cooper. Howe, though, seems to be closing in the Celtic job.
Is Sean Dyche is a good option for Palace?
Ambrose talked about the potential opening at the club and he believes that Dyche is the man to take over at the club in the summer.
The former Palace player said: “I really like Sean Dyche. I think he’s a fantastic manager, who’s probably overachieved with the players he has at Burnley over the seasons.
“But a manager’s going to come in, knowing they probably have to reshape the whole club. So you need someone who has enough experience, enough nous about them that could come and do that and I think Sean Dyche could be that man.”
TIF Thoughts on Sean Dyche to Palace…
Dyche has managed Burnley for about nine years now, picking up a points-per-match tally of 1.4. During this period, though, not only has Dyche helped Burnley establish themselves as a regular Premier League side, but he also helped them get promoted from the Championship on two occasions. If that’s not enough, he also helped them to a Europa League spot in 2017-18 (as per Transfermarkt).
Dyche also brings a tactical identity with him, as he likes his teams to play a direct brand of football. He’s experienced at various levels of the game and is tactically certain too. And considering his time at Burnley, this may not be a bad move for Palace.
