Lampard was sacked as manager following Saturday’s 2-0 loss to West Ham, which pushed Everton to 19th place in the Premier League and left them without a win in 10 games in all competitions.
Lampard resigned after the Toffees lost at the London Stadium for the third time in a row. Farhad Moshiri, the owner of Everton, attended his first game since October 2021.
The former Chelsea manager joined Everton in January 2022, and after helping the club avoid relegation last season, he leaves Goodison Park with the division’s poorest win % (15 points from 20 games, three triumphs).
Only Southampton is lower in the Premier League table than Everton, where they are presently positioned 19th.
After Jarrod Bowen’s double doomed Everton to loss, supporters protested against the club’s leadership, but the board of directors responded by sacking Lampard.
When asked if Lampard’s time was up after that setback, Moshiri stated “it’s not my choice,” while the head coach emphasized in his last post-match interview that he remained focused on the task at hand.
