Simon Jordan believes British Premier League boss would succeed at Manchester CityDAZN
The manager's work praised by the former Crystal Palace owner.

Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan has hailed Sean Dyche's work at Everton and claimed the Toffees boss would be equally successful as Manchester City boss. 

Dyche kept Everton in the Premier League for a second consecutive season despite a points deduction and a backdrop of boardroom drama at the club. 

Speaking on William Hill’s new podcast, Three Up Front, Jordan says he thinks the 52-year-old would be able to adapt and succeed at a higher level because he has an elite way of thinking. 

“Sean Dyche has done a remarkable job at Everton. He’s an elite manager operating in a different way to what we consider an elite manager to be," Jordan said. 
“I don’t know if one of these so-called highfalutin managers like Mikel Arteta could go into Everton and get the team across the line with what he had to work with.
“Given the job that Dyche has done at Everton, I think that requires an elite set of thinking. I don’t think Everton, with the group of players that they’ve got, can play the way Manchester City can play. Do I think Sean Dyche could adapt to Man City? Yes. But there would be a perception that he wasn’t a ‘sexy’ manager, so subsequently everyone would be all over him and looking at him waiting for the first chink to appear.
“Conversely, could you stick Pep Guardiola or Arteta at Everton? You’d have to say to them you’ve got this group of players, you’ve got all of these problems going on off the pitch, you’ve got fans that are disenfranchised with the board, the owners on the way out, but get this team out of the trouble they’re in. I think that that takes an elite mentality.”
