Everton Sacks Frank Lampard
English outfit, Everton FC, have announced that Frank Lampard has been sacked as manager of the struggling club.
Following their 2-0 loss to West Ham United FC on Saturday, 21 January – which marks their ninth loss in 12 league games – the Toffees posted a statement on Monday, 23 January, in which they announced the 44-year-old Englishman’s dismissal.
“Frank Lampard has left his post as Senior Men’s First Team Manager today,” it reads. “Joe Edwards, Paul Clement, Ashley Cole and Chris Jones have also left the Club. Alan Kelly will remain as goalkeeping coach.”
While Everton begins its search to find a new manager, Paul Tait and Leighton Baines will both be in charge of training.
Lampard’s sacking comes nearly a year after he was appointed the club’s manager; prior to that, he had coached Chelsea before also being sacked following a string of poor performances.
Everton are languishing in 19th place on the English Premier League table with 15 points, and are on the cusp of being relegated alongside Bournemouth (17 points) and Southampton (15 points).
