Frank Lampard sacked as Everton boss
and live on Freeview channel 276
Just over a year after ending Rafael Benitez’s ill-fated 200-day stay, owner Farhad Moshiri has fired his sixth manager in just under seven years since taking over.
Lampard paid the price for a run of nine defeats in 12 league matches which has left the club embroiled in a second successive relegation battle.
The former Derby and Chelsea boss won just nine and lost 21 of his 38 Premier League matches since taking over and departs eight days before the first anniversary of his appointment.
Everton have scored just 34 goals during that period, and this season they have 15 goals in 20 games and have managed to score more than once in a game twice this season.
