Manager Frank Lampard is on the verge of being fired.
Everton lost 0-2 to West Ham United in the 21st round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at the London Stadium in London, England at 0:00 am (hereinafter referred to as Korean time) on the 22nd. Everton, who failed to score points, was in 19th place in the league (15 points).
It was a very important match for Everton. Both Everton and West Ham were in the relegation zone with 15 points. The winning team had a good chance to rise to a higher rank. In addition, Everton has been sluggish with 2 draws and 6 losses in the last 8 league games, so they desperately needed a win.
But Everton couldn’t laugh. In the 34th and 42nd minutes of the first half, Jerod Bowen conceded consecutive goals and lost. Everton only attempted 5 shots in 90 minutes. In particular, the player with the most shots on the team was defender Yeri Mina (twice). Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Alex Iwobi, and Idrissa Gueye tried one each.
Everton have not been relegated once since 1951. Although there is no winning record since the launch of the EPL, it is a club with a long history enough to participate in the top league for 69 consecutive seasons. However, the turning point of this season is located in the relegation zone from the point of view of money, and it is a situation where survival cannot be guaranteed in the future. 먹튀검증
Lampard’s future is also uncertain. England’s ‘The Times’ said on the 23rd, “Coach Lampard will know his fate at Everton today. Discussions began after the defeat against West Ham, and will continue today. It is going to come down,” he said.
Lampard was one of the best players in England during his playing days. He has been active at Chelsea for about 13 years since 2001 and has won 13 championship trophies, including 3 EPL championships. After that, he played for Manchester City, New York City (USA), etc., and started his leadership career at Derby County in 2018.
And from 2019, he took the baton of Chelsea, the ‘family team’. However, two years later, he was sacked due to poor grades. In January of last year, he took over as manager of Everton and challenged the EPL stage again, but continued to perform poorly in the second season of his appointment, putting him on the verge of being hardened after about a year.
