BREAKING: Another Premier League manager sacked!

Two British aid workers confirmed to have been killed in Ukraine

Frank Lampard has been fired by Premier League outfit Everton after a dismal first half of the season.


Frank Lampard has been sacked by Premier League outfit Everton today, Monday, January 23. After a dismal first half of the season, the club finds itself languishing just above the relegation zone in 19th spot.

The 44-year-old former England star has been at Goodison Park since replacing Rafa Benitez in late January 2021, having previously been in charge of Chelsea. Lampard performed a small miracle as he steered the Toffees to safety last season when they had looked odds-on to go down to the Championship.

Everton have picked up only one point since the restart after the World Cup, a draw against the reigning champions, Manchester City. They also lost to Manchester United in the FA Cup.

After the 2-0 defeat at West Ham last Saturday 21, Lampard’s position really looked untenable. He had a meeting with the club’s majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri and chairman Bill Kenwright. Kevin Thelwell, the club’s director of football was also present and it was decided to let the manager go.

A search will now take place to find the next coach but in the meantime, Leighton Baines – who currently looks after the Under 18s – will reportedly control the day-to-day matters at Goodison Park, along with Paul Tait, the Under 21 head coach.
