Pundit Carlton Palmer has recently talked about Sean Dyche’s potential move to Crystal Palace at the end of the season.
Roy Hodgson’s contract at Palace runs out at the end of the current campaign and it has been suggested that the Eagles are already looking at potential replacements for the Englishman. While Frank Lampard is said to be interested in taking over the role, Dyche is someone who has been linked with the job in the past.
Will Palace hire Dyche in the summer?
Dyche has previously made it clear that it is certainly flattering to be linked with other Premier League jobs, but his current focus is always on Burnley’s next game (as per Football.London).
Palmer was recently having a chat with Transfer Tavern and he talked about the fact that moving to Palace could well be a step-up for Dyche in his management career.
He said: “I don’t think they’re similar level clubs. Sean Dyche has done wonders for Burnley. No disrespect to Burnley, but I think it’s a step up in terms of the wages they can pay and the players they can bring into the football club.
“There’s new owners going into Burnley and they’re going to be supporting Sean Dyche in the transfer market. Unless Sean is not given funds and he’s got to sell his best players, he’s not going to be happy and he’s not going to want to stay. But that’s all pre-assuming that Hodgson doesn’t stay on for another season.”
TIF Thoughts on Dyche to Palace…
Dyche has been at Burnley since October 2012 and during this period, his points per match tally has been at a decent 1.39. At Turf Moor, Dyche has helped the club climb up to the Premier League from the Championship and in recent seasons, Burnley have been established as a regular top-flight side.
It shows that Dyche is certainly a reliable manager but like Burnley, Palace have also been an established top-flight side for some years now. So if Palace want to become a club that pushes past merely staying in the division, Dyche might not be that sort of a manager.
