World Soccer Today: Everton Sack Manager Frank Lampard After Less Than a Year in Charge

- World Soccer Today -

 Everton has dismissed manager Frank Lampard from his position after less than a year of being in charge. 

The team, which is currently facing the possibility of being relegated, decided to let go of Lampard as they are currently in 19th place on the league table, tied with the last-place team, Southampton. 

Recently, there have been issues at the club with security risks, leading to club directors being told to stay away from Goodison Park. 

After a disappointing 2-0 loss to fellow struggling team West Ham, the club owner, Farhad Moshiri, was asked if it was time for Lampard to be fired, but he stated that it was not his decision to make. 

Lampard commented on his future saying that it is not in his control and that his focus is on working and keeping his head down.

The decision to sack Lampard comes as a surprise as he was only appointed to replace Rafael Benitez in January 2022. 

However, the team has struggled under his leadership, losing nine of their past 12 Premier League matches. 

The defeat against West Ham was particularly damaging as it put the team in a precarious position in the league table.

Everton will now begin the search for a new manager to take over the team and try to steer them away from the danger of relegation. 

The club will need to act quickly to find a suitable candidate and try to turn around the team's fortunes before it is too late.

Lampard, meanwhile, will have to look for a new opportunity to continue his managerial career. 

He has a proven track record of success, having led Chelsea to multiple trophies during his time as manager, and he will likely be in high demand despite the disappointment at Everton.

The club has not yet announced who will take over as interim manager.

 However, it's expected that the club will name a new manager soon as they are under pressure to ensure that they don't get relegated.
