Frank Lampard sacked as Everton manager as Chelsea legend loses another job


Frank Lampard has been sacked as Everton manager days after suffering another damaging victory, losing 2-0 at West Ham.

The Toffees went into Saturday’s clash with the Hammers looking to avoid a fifth defeat in six Premier League matches since the World Cup break.

But the reversal at the hands of their fellow relegation strugglers means that Everton find themselves marooned in the bottom three and on the lookout for another manager.

Goodison Park bosses have been forced into action just over a week after supporters carried out a number of protests about the direction of the club. Much of the ire was directed towards those above Lampard, including owner Farhad Moshiri, but it is the manager that has now paid the price with his job.

Speaking after the defeat in the capital, Lampard insisted he didn’t fear being sacked.:

“I absolutely don’t fear, I’m proud to do the job. I never get that far down the line to fear, I just do my job, I get up every day and think how we can get a little bit better, it’s as simple as that.”

The former Chelsea boss was appointed at Goodison Park at the start of last year, taking over from Rafael Benitez who suffered a similarly galling time on Merseyside.

And his first campaign ended in wild celebration as Everton avoided relegation to the Championship with one game remaining.

Lampard described the decisive win over Crystal Palace as “one of the greatest nights of my career.”

However, rather than that act as a turning point in their recent fortunes, the new campaign has been much the same.
