Everton: Greg O’Keeffe reveals when Frank Lampard could be sacked

Everton: Greg O’Keeffe reveals when Frank Lampard could be sacked -Everton News

Everton manager Frank Lampard may only have two games left in charge, The Athletic’s Greg O’Keeffe has claimed.

The Lowdown: Pressure now mounting

According to David Ornstein, Everton are keeping Lampard in charge for their FA Cup clash against Manchester United this weekend, which, on paper, appears to be a case of damage limitation given the two clubs’ contrasting form.

It’s after this weekend when the important matches resume, with back-to-back games against fellow relegation rivals West Ham and Southampton the ones Lampard will be putting a lot of focus into.

However, it still remains unclear whether or not he will be in charge of Everton for either of those games – especially if the Toffees are embarrassed at Old Trafford on Friday night.

The Latest: Lampard’s future remains unclear

O’Keeffe has admitted on the All Together Now podcast that he’s unsure if Lampard will be Everton’s boss when they face the Saints later this month.

He said: “It is, after all, a hunch or a guess. I think he will be in charge before United, he will be in charge after United, and he might be given the Southampton game to see what he can do there.”

The Verdict: Moshiri has a huge decision to make

While the knee-jerk reaction would have been to sack Lampard after a shocking home defeat which left the Toffees inside the bottom three, Farhad Moshiri has decided to back his manager for now.

However, if the Toffees were to taste defeat against Man United and West Ham without putting up any sort of fight, Moshiri may well have no choice but to sack the manager he appointed less than 12 months ago.

Toffees fans, who scored your first goal of the 2022 calendar year?

Moshiri made the decision to appease Evertonians last year when he appointed Lampard after protests outside of Goodison Park when it seemed they were close to appointing Vitor Pereira, so it remains to be seen if the Toffees boss has much time left on his side.
