Legendary Lampard bowing his head again in ‘Blitzkrieg’… ‘A history of repeated failures’
On the 24th (Korean time), local media such as ‘Sky Sports’ and ‘The Athletic’ all reported the news of Lampard’s dismissal. “During the day, the Everton club will announce the resignation,” he said.
After losing 0-2 against West Ham on the 22nd, Lampard’s possibility of being sacked came to the fore. With this defeat, Everton fell into a 10-game winless swamp, including the cup, and the league ranking fell to 19th, relegation zone. I was driven to the slope.
According to local media reports, coach Lampard puts down the baton exactly one year after taking over the Everton baton in January of last year as the successor to former manager Rafael Benitez.
Coincidentally, coach Lampard received a notice of resignation from Chelsea in January 2021, a year before he took the Everton command tower. Coach Lampard, who led Chelsea from 2019 through Derby County (2018-2019), has experienced two ‘nightmare months’ in the last two years.
Local media are citing former Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa, former Burnley manager Sean Dishes, and current DC United manager Wayne Rooney as candidates for the next command tower.
Lampard is a legendary midfielder who represented the English Premier League in the 1990s and 2010s. In particular, he wrote a brilliant history as a ‘middle rider’ at Chelsea, where he stayed from 2001 to 2014. He also scored 29 goals in 106 appearances for England.
Lampard, who retired in 2016 after working for Manchester City and New York City, has entered the path of leadership with ambition, but so far has been repeating the history of failure. This failure could make it difficult to recover.
