Toffees fire Lampard

LONDON, Jan 24: Everton fired manager Frank Lampard on Monday as the crisis-hit Premier League team took action amid its latest fight against relegation and protests by disgruntled fans against the club’s board.
Everton’s 2-0 loss at West Ham on Saturday was the team’s ninth defeat in its last 12 matches and proved to be Lampard’s final game in charge. He leaves with Everton in next-to-last place in the league after 20 of 38 games and with the same number of points as last-place Southampton.
Lampard, a former England international and Chelsea great, lasted nearly a year in a role that is fast becoming one of the most challenging in English soccer, with Everton now looking for its eighth permanent manager since Farhad Moshiri bought the club in 2016. (AP)
