That is the absolute reality. I don’t need guarantees. I come to work to try to improve a little every day; me, the team, the squad, everything. I’m not looking for guarantees.

Lampard added: “I think I came here almost a year ago and my feeling when I walked into the building, a lot of the Evertonians, who have such a passion for the club, felt that we were heading towards relegation.” That’s my honest feeling.

“So we managed to have an amazing time together, that sounds kind of silly or whatever you want to say, to keep us awake.” Everyone saw the images of the Palace, and I lived that moment with the fans and everyone at the club as well.

‘In my mind too, I went home that night, had a glass of wine and [said] This is where the work begins and it’s going to be a difficult journey, because the exhilaration of surviving the relegation battle was great, but the reality was that there was a lot of work to do from there because we were in that battle. .

“So I feel like we’re in that process. No, I’m not stupid, we need to get results, we want to stay in this league, that’s the first thing this year. We’ve just slipped into the bottom three, that’s not my main concern, and I’m not talking about it, I’m just saying we’re in and around this area, that’s the reality, and if we win our next league game we’ll probably be out of the last three.

“So, that’s just one part of the process for me and I can’t affect anything more than that, my point is that I was very aware of what I went into with this job, I want to be successful at this club and whatever the challenges are. Come forward, I’ll face you head on.

In fact, I enjoy them, I enjoy working for this club. It is a true honor for me. That’s why I said in my previous answer that I don’t need guarantees, I don’t need these things, I am a great man who works for a great club and I will continue to do so.

Dyche has been out of a job since Burnley sacked him in April, while Martinez, who recently stepped down as Belgium manager after their World Cup exit, previously managed the Toffees from June 2013 to May 2016.

Rooney is the surprise name on Moshiri’s list, particularly after he turned down his boyhood club last year.

During his time at Derby, Rooney admitted: ‘They approached my agent and asked me to interview for the job which I turned down.

“I think I’ll be a Premier League manager and I’m ready for that, and if that’s with Everton in the future that would be great.”

“It was a very difficult decision, but I have a job here in Derby that is important to me.”
