Everton chiefs are ‘edgy’ and are considering hijacking an imminent appointment within the Premier League to replace Frank Lampard whose sacking has been discussed internally, per a report.
The Toffees embarked on a dismal run of form heading into the World Cup break. A six-match unbeaten streak stabilised their season following successive defeats to open the campaign. However, Everton have registered just one win in their last seven league clashes, losing five.
The latest came at the hands of Bournemouth who also dumped Everton out of the League Cup four days prior. Frank Lampard’s side were roundly defeat in both contests, losing each by three-goal margins.
That led to agitation from the travelling Everton fans on Sunday who voiced their displeasure at both the players and manager post-match.
Everton currently sit 17th in the table and their goals tally of 11 is the league’s joint-second lowest. Only bottom-placed Wolves have found the net on fewer occasions (eight).
With another scrap to avoid relegation seemingly on the horizon under Lampard, Football Insider report change could be afoot.
They claim Everton chiefs have become ‘edgy’ at their predicament and Lampard’s future has been discussed over the last 48 hours since the second bruising Bournemouth defeat.
Lampard’s job is described as ‘being on the line’, and the club’s decision-makers have sensationally discussed hijacking a seemingly imminent appointment elsewhere.
