Sean Dyche has hailed Dele Alli’s growing influence as a makeshift coach behind the scenes as he gave a candid insight into the Everton midfielder’s quest to relaunch his career.

The one-time England star took the brave decision in July to open up on the traumas that pockmarked his life and the impact it had on his mental health; there was a huge outpouring of support, not least from Everton, for whom he signed in January 2022.

Dele is currently sidelined with a groin issue and Dyche is not putting a timeline on when he will be ready to play in the Premier League again; the 27-year-old is being limited to gym work and treatment and is some distance away from being involved in contact training.

But that isn’t stopping him being a presence on a daily basis at Finch Farm, Everton’s training base. 

Dele has made observations to Dyche about how the team has been playing - which the manager has shared with the squad - and he can see similarities with Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham.

‘I don’t think he would mind me sharing that there probably was a period when (his career) was drifting for him,’ said Dyche.
