Rio Ferdinand does not see Everton parting ways with Frank Lampard despite their back-to-back defeats against Bournemouth in the Premier League and EFL Cup, writes the GoodisonNews.
The Toffees find themselves in 17th place and in the midst of another relegation battle – only narrowly avoiding the drop last season.
With there being no league football until the end of December, Ferdinand admits that it’s a worrying period for the manager.
Speaking on Vibe With Five at 38:25, he said, “This is the big break so it’s worrying. I don’t think he gets the sack. It’s a big result, Bournemouth as well – the teams around you.”
Usually, the Toffees would not have kept a manager with these kinds of results and would use the break as an opportunity to get rid of him.
Rafa Benitez never was this bad in terms of the relegation threat and he was sacked in the middle of the transfer window even though he got Lucas Digne sold and brought in some of his own players.
Sacking Lampard certainly does not solve the mess at the club and they’re still a bunch of incompetent people in power that are calling the shots.
Ferdinand is right, Everton losing to clubs like Bournemouth, by a 3-0 scoreline, does them no favours, especially in the manner they lost it.
It was a shameful performance and if the players are not seeming to be improving under Lampard then it makes little sense to still keep him at the club.
