Sean Dyche shows he'd be the ideal appointment for Wolves with MNF comments last night

Last night, Sean Dyche was the guest on Monday Night Football (MNF) – and he made some comments that suggest he would be an ideal appointment by Wolves.

The former Burnley manager was in the studio for the game between West Ham United and Bournemouth, which finished 2-0 to the hosts.

Dyche has been out of work now since April.

Burnley sacked him, hoping a managerial change would save them from relegation.

It didn’t, and the Clarets are now in the Championship and fighting to return to the top-flight.

Dyche spoke about his lengthy and successful stint at Turf Moor, and at one point talk turned to the kind of manager he actually is.

There is a certain perception of Dyche, but the 51-year-old doesn’t care about what people think about his style and knows it is effective.

He said (via Football Daily): “Why fight the box you’re put in? You’re going to be put in a box, it’s an easy thing for me.

“I would imagine (the perception of me is) 4-4-2, pretty direct football, defensive. On the positive side, because that sounds a bit negative… hard-working, strong team ethic, strong feel, good coacher.

“Whatever job I get, if I get one, I want the fans to know that they’ve got a team that’s going to give everything. They’ve got a team that’s going to work. They’ve got a team that’s got heart. So that won’t change.

“What I’d do is look at the technical understanding of the team, the tactical aspect, what’s their background, where have they been, what’s been their influences? You have to piece that together and start moulding into a team. And that’s how I view how football should personally work within a team.

“You get that right, and everything else starts to look after itself.”

Wolves should be making contact with Sean Dyche immediately after appearance on MNF

Wolves are in a world of trouble right now, and a move for Dyche should be strongly considered by Jeff Shi, Fosun and those in senior positions at Molineux.

Hearing him speak last night on MNF, it is difficult to argue against him being exactly what the club needs right now.

In recent weeks, there has been an alarming lack of fight from the players.

It feels as though the team is sleepwalking into relegation, and someone needs to come in and shake these players to their senses.

Dyche may not be known for playing pretty football.

But he was successful for years in the Premier League with Burnley on a shoestring budget. He is effective at what he does.

It almost felt like he could have been interviewing for the vacancy at Molineux watching him speak last night. Hopefully, Shi and others from Wolves were tuned in.
