Everton sack Frank Lampard

By Razeen Gutta

A poor run of defeats have led Everton to sacking manager Frank Lampard after less than a year in charge, according to multiple reports in England.

Protests against owner Farhad Moshiri, chairman Bill Kenwright and the board continued from Toffees fans after their 2-0 loss to West Ham on Saturday; and a way forward has finally been found by those in charge.

The result was Everton’s 11th defeat in 14 games, and former England international Lampard was said to have been relieved of his duties on Monday afternoon.

The Merseyside club have fallen to 19th in the table after recording their worst ever points tally at this stage of a Premier League season.

44-year-old Lampard replaced Rafa Benitez at the end of January last year, and despite keeping Everton in the league at the end of the last campaign, the awful string of results this season has now seen him fired. 

The club’s woes in front of goal have continued following an injury filled two years for leading striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin. 

Everton did sign attackers in the form of Dwight McNeil and Neil Maupay, but the duo have struggled to find form. The departure of Brazil’s number nine Richarlison has not made things any easier, either. 

Lampard is the sixth manager to be sacked in Moshiri’s seven years as the club’s owner, with Wayne Rooney among the candidates to take over according to GOAL
