Everton sack Frank Lampard – The Athletic

Frank Lampard has been sacked before everton After losing 2-0 at West Ham United team.

The Everton ownership made the decision to part ways with Lampard on Monday.

Lampard’s side lost 2-1 to the 20th-placed team Southampton Last weekend and their latest defeat prompted the board to act, with Everton only bottom of the table on goal difference.

The Merseyside club have recorded just three wins in 20 Premier League matches this season, most recently against Liverpool Crystal Palace On 22 October. No team has yet won fewer games in the division.

Ahead of the Southampton game, Everton owner Farhad Moshiri had given Lampard his support but, after West Ham’s loss, claimed that sacking him “wasn’t his decision”.

But defeat by West Ham, fellow strugglers this season, was a huge loss for Lampard.
