Frank Lampard Sacked as Everton Manager After Dire Run of Form

Why Was Frank Lampard Sacked?

“Frank Lampard sacked” has been the likely outcome of Everton’s season for some time now. The club’s last win was as far back as October against Crystal Palace, with the Toffees losing to fellow strugglers Leicester City, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Southampton and West Ham United in that time. In a match dubbed “El Sackico” at the weekend, David Moyes’ Hammers coming out on top was the final blow for the former England international.

Frank Lampard’s Career Summed Up

In spite of some seeing Lampard as a promising manager, this has effectively summed up his career. His first role was with Derby County, in which he came into a club in sixth place in the Championship, added Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori and Harry Wilson, and proceeded to finish the season in sixth. The Englishman then moved to Chelsea, where he took the club from Champions League contention to ninth place before his replacement, Thomas Tuchel, took the club to win Europe’s greatest club competition. A spell at Everton, in which he has threatened to drive the club into the second tier for the first time in 69 years, is another example of his underperformance.

What Next for Everton?

Everton have a few managerial options. Sean Dyche is available after leaving Burnley, with Wayne Rooney having strong links to the club from his playing days. The likes of relegation specialist ‘Big Sam’ Allardyce remain available too.

Even after choosing a new manager, the Toffees could be in trouble. FFP has riddled the club’s ability to make transfers recently, and with fan anger at the ownership, Goodison Park feels like a ground soon to boil over.
