Frank Lampard will take the managerial role at Everton football club as per Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano after the club sacked Rafa Benitez who showed a poor run of form in this year’s English Premier League and fans weren’t too happy with the performances they put on the pitch as a team of Everton’s caliber should.
The former Derby and Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has beaten the likes of Vitor Perreira and interim manager Duncan Ferguson to take the managerial role at Goodison Park after a series of interviews in London on Friday. Lampard is expected to bring his coaching staff members who were with him at Stamford Bridge during his stint at Chelsea one year after leaving the club.
Everton sacked Rafa Benitez after a not so impressive start at the club in January just after six months of his appointment and the role was handed over to Ducan Ferguson which was his 2 time as the interim manager at the club who lost 1-0 to Aston villa in his only game in charge.
Former Everton player Wayne Rooney was also being heavily linked with the toffees to take the managerial role but he turned down the club’s approach to sign him because he wanted to focus on his current job at Derby County.
Frank Lampard set to be appointed as new Everton manager. Full agreement reached now. It’s done and sealed. 🔵🏴 #EFC

Lampard also has the same route as Rooney, as he began his managerial role at Derby before becoming the manager at Staform Bridge leading his side to a fourth-place finish in the Premier League and reaching the finals of the FA cup in his first season at Chelsea. And was later sacked in 2021 after a poor run of form in the second season.
