Everton sacked Frank Lampard


Everton have eased Frank Lampard of his managerial duties after a poor run of form.

The Toffees lost their last ten games in all competitions, dropping to 19th place in the Premier League table. Also they are out from both domestic cup competitions.

The final nail in the coffin was Saturday’s 2-0 loss to relegation rivals West Ham United, which keeps Everton off the bottom of the table solely on goal difference.

Lampard was the manager of the Toffees for just over a year and had a win percentage of 27.3% during that time.

Everton has yet to issue an official statement, but 90min understands they have informed Lampard of their decision.

Lampard had only managed one victory in his previous 12 Premier League games and had been in a precarious position since the Boxing Day home defeat by Wolves, who were bottom at the time. Everton have since dropped to joint bottom of the Premier League, with the club’s lowest points tally at this stage of any Premier League season, after a dreadful defeat by Brighton and another home loss to last-placed Southampton.

The 44-year-old took over for the divisive Rafael Bentez on January 31, last year, but despite preserving Everton’s top-flight status in the season’s penultimate game against Crystal Palace, his win ratio was worse than any permanent Everton manager with the exception of Mike Walker.

With Lampard’s departure, Everton owner Farhad Moshiri has fired six managers in nearly seven years and is looking for his eighth permanent manager during his turbulent tenure. Former Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhüttl and former Burnley manager Sean Dyche could be among the candidates to succeed Lampard. Everton may also consider a contract extension until the end of the season.
