What future for Frank Lampard? Sacked Everton boss faces big career decision

F

Lampard became the latest scapegoat for Everton owner Farhad Moshiri when he was sacked on Monday night, but few Toffees fans hold the former Chelsea and England midfielder responsible for their precarious position or the civil war that engulfed the club.

Lampard was, in fact, highly regarded for avoiding relegation from Everton last season and speaking openly to supporters about the club’s many shortcomings.

While he wasn’t to blame for Everton’s years of mismanagement, which left him with an unbalanced and demoralized squad, it’s also true that Lampard could and should have done better with his spell.

He played a rotten hand badly in a run of nine defeats from 12 league games and, although he could point to saving the Toffees and some outstanding results, the move to Merseyside has not improved his reputation of coach.

Frank Lampard has impressed in fits and starts as a manager.

The question for Lampard is where he goes next.

He has now won two top Premier League jobs and been sacked twice in 18 months. Will another top-flight club attack a manager whose dugout struggles are increasingly relevant than his years of brilliance on the pitch?

A return to the Championship, where he has done a reasonable job with Derby, may seem like a step backwards, but that’s exactly what Lampard needs right now.

A stable second-tier club away from the spotlight would allow him to hone his craft and be more beneficial to his long-term prospects than taking on another high-pressure role.
