Breaking: Everton Sacks Coach Frank Lampard

Published

on

Everton football club has sacked the club’s head coach, Frank Lampard after a poor run of games and reported infighting.

After Saturday’s embarrassing 2-0 loss to West Ham, Everton decided to fire Frank Lampard, a former Chelsea and England midfielder.

With only 15 points from 20 league games this season, the outcome of Saturday’s league game puts Everton two points outside of safety.

Over the weekend, Lampard spoke with owner Moshiri, chairman Bill Kenwright, and director of football Kevin Thelwell. He acknowledged that things would change following Saturday’s 2-0 loss at West Ham.

Everton’s players received a day off on Monday following the defeat to West Ham, and they won’t be due back at Finch Farm until Tuesday.

Paul Tait, the head coach of the Under 21s, and club veteran Leighton Baines, who is in charge of the Under 18s, will be in charge of managing day-to-day operations while the club looks for a new manager.

The Toffees have only played five league games since the World Cup, earning just one point (a draw against Manchester City), and they lost to Manchester United in the FA Cup.

Lampard’s position is no longer viable after they recently suffered bruising losses to fellow struggling teams Wolves, Southampton, and West Ham.

Their dismal performance on the field has also been hampered by off-field demonstrations by fans against the club’s wildly unpopular board, with players like Yerry Mina and Anthony Gordon coming under fire after the team’s loss to Southampton earlier this month.

Also, Lampard reportedly got into a fight with some of his players amid their poor run of form.

In his 44 games as the club’s manager, Lampard only managed to win 12 of them, while also suffering 23 defeats. This results in a win percentage of just 27% for Lampard.

CityNews Nigeria recalls that Frank Lampard replaced Rafa Benitez at Everton in January 2022, but he has been unable to reverse the damage at Goodison Park.

The two front-runners to replace the Chelsea icon are former Burnley manager Sean Dyche and ex-Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa.
