Everton Sack Manager Frank Lampard

By Chimezie Nebolisa

Premier League side, Everton have sacked manager Frank Lampard after less than a year in charge at the Goodison Park club.

Lampard was appointed to replace Rafael Benitez in January 2022 but leaves the 19th in the table, level on points with bottom club Southampton.

In a sign of the turmoil enveloping Everton, club directors were earlier this month ordered to stay away from Goodison Park due to perceived security risks.

Everton fell to a damaging 2-0 defeat at fellow strugglers West Ham on Saturday – a ninth loss in their past 12 Premier League matches.

Everton felt compelled to act over Lampard's future as they fight to avoid playing outside the top flight for the first time since 1954.
