Something we all knew was going to happen, finally happened. Frank Lampard has been sacked as Everton coach. This is reported by numerous English media. The club from Liverpool is in serious relegation concerns with a nineteenth place in the Premier League table. Last season he managed to narrowly escape relegation, but things aren’t improving this season.
Lampard successor of Benitez
Lampard, who succeeded Rafael Benítez at the end of January 2022, indicated this weekend that he still has full confidence in the club’s future after a 2-0 defeat against West Ham United. It was the fourth loss in a row for The Toffees. In the last ten games, Lampard and associates have not won once. The last win was on October 22 (3-0 against Crystal Palace). Since then, elimination in the League Cup tournament and the FA Cup tournament followed, while in the Premier League there were two draws and six losses. Resulting in a nineteenth place in the English league with only fifteen points after twenty games, just as few as last-placed Southampton. Free bet offers on Everton to survive will paid out a lot of money if it happens.
Lampard previously coached Derby County and Chelsea. At The Blues, Lampard was fired in January 2021 after a year and a half. Chelsea were ninth in the Premier League at the time and only three Chelsea coaches have ever scored lower than Lampard. Lampard did well at Derby County. He narrowly missed out on promotion with the team in the play-offs. It’s going to be very interesting to see what he’s going to do next. Will he go back to Chelsea in a different role? Does he go back to doing some TV-work or will he be waiting for another managerial job? It looks very unlikely that he will be managing a Premier League club anytime soon, but maybe he can do something abroad.
