‘I’m disappointed’, Lampard breaks silence after Everton sacking. Frank Lampard, a former captain of Chelsea, responded to his dismissal as Everton’s manager following a lackluster campaign in which the team lost 11 games and picked up just 15 points.
In a statement, the 44-year-old expressed his “disappointment” at not being able to do more with the Merseyside club.
The squad was kept in the Premier League last season because to “great work and support from everyone involved,” he said. “Coming into Everton last year I knew we were in a challenging period.”

“Thanks to everyone who contributed, the entire club came together.
“I will never forget the amazing night we had versus Palace. I want to express my gratitude to all Evertonians for the kind welcome you provided to my family, my employees, and I.
“It is undoubtedly a unique club with a big heart and a remarkable history.
I wish the players and everyone at Everton FC the utmost best for the future and am sad that we weren’t able to accomplish more together.
The sale of Richalison and Dominic Calvert Lewin’s injury issue, according to Jurgen Klopp, the club’s Champions League-winning coach, were major blunders in Lampard’s management tenure.
“That is the deal. Although last year was difficult, he performed well, he remarked.
Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin were lost. We are aware of the significant ways in which injuries might affect the season.
“We in the job must acknowledge that. He’ll return; he’s a youthful coach,” stated Klopp.
The last stages of discussing his deal, which will be valid through 2025, between Sean Dyche and the club have brought him the closest to succeeding Lampard as the new Everton head coach.
