Frank Lampard arrived at Goodison Park in January 2022, and although he helped the club avoid the drop last year, he leaves Everton in 19th place in the Premier League; Sean Dyche, Marcelo Bielsa and Thomas Frank are all admired by Everton hierarchy
Everton have confirmed the sacking of manager Frank Lampard and are considering replacing him with former Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa.
Lampard’s dismissal follows Everton owner Farhad Moshiri attending his first match since October 2021 as the Toffees succumbed to a 2-0 defeat by West Ham at the London Stadium on Saturday – their third consecutive loss in the league.
The former Chelsea boss arrived at Goodison Park in January 2022, and although he helped the club avoid the drop last season, he leaves Everton with 15 points from 20 games and three wins this term – the worst victory record in the division. Everton are 19th in the table, with only Southampton below them on goal difference.
An Everton statement said: “Everyone at Everton would like to thank Frank and his coaching staff for their service during what has been a challenging 12 months.
“Frank and his team’s commitment and dedication have been exemplary throughout their time at the club, but recent results and the current league position meant this difficult decision had to be taken. We wish Frank and all his backroom team well for their future in the game.
