On Monday, January 23, 2023, Everton FC parted ways with first team coach Frank Lampard after a run of poor performances.
The former Chelsea and Derby boss was told his 357 day spell in charge had come to an end during a phone call with Farhad Moshiri, Everton’s major shareholder.
Lampard took Everton’s managerial job on Monday, January 31, last year on a two-and-half-year contract after the sacking of Rafael Benitez.
He was expected to improve the club’s performance but he has struggled particularly in the first half of the 2022/2023 season.
The Toffees failed to pick a single win in their latest five English Premier League (EPL) matches, losing four and drawing one.
They last won an EPL match on Sunday, October 22, 2022, against Patrick Viera’s coached Crystal Palace side.
The Merseyside is expected to play its next EPL match against a high-flying Arsenal side on Saturday, February 4.
Arsenal has only lost one single match this season and to beat them, Everton would have to be at their best.
Some of the managers who have been linked with the Everton job include ex-Leeds United tactician Marcelo Bielsa and former Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton head coach Nuno Espirito Santo.
Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerald are the other names likely to fill the vacant role left by Lampard.
