Everton have reportedly dismissed Frank Lampard as their manager following his poor run of games as the Merseyside club was left languishing in the relegation zone on the league table. Meanwhile, Lampard’s sack has explained why being a football legend doesn’t secure you will be a success as a football manager.
The Premier League legend started his coaching career at Derby County when he took them from 5th to 6th. Following that performance, he was appointed as Chelsea’s coach at the beginning of the 2019/20 season. Lampard took Chelsea from 3rd to 4th.
Finally, at Everton, he spent 12 months and took the club from 16th to 19th which has resulted in his sack today.
However, his awful performance at Everton just like the two previous clubs managed shows that the fact he is a successful footballer doesn’t mean he will be successful as a coach.
