Frank Lampard appointed new manager at Everton Football Club

Premier League campaigners Everton Football Club have confirmed the appointment of former Chelsea player and coach Frank Lampard as their new manager on a two-and-a-half-year deal.

The former England midfielder replaces the sacked Rafa Benitez at Merseyside after a run of poor results, which has seen the club locked in a battle to escape relegation. Along with Lampard’s appointment, it is expected that his first signing as manager would be Netherlands midfielder and Manchester United outcast Donny van de Beek on loan until the remainder of the current season.

Lampard made his intentions known after his appointment: “It is a huge honour for me to represent and manage a club the size and tradition of Everton Football Club. I’m very hungry to get started. After speaking to the owner, Chairman and the Board, I very much felt their passion and ambition. I hope they felt my ambition and how hard I want to work to bring it together.”

He further added: “You can feel the passion Everton fans have for their club. That will be hugely important. As a team – the competitive level that the Premier League brings and the position we are in the table – we certainly need that. It’s a two-way thing. I think Everton is a unique club in that you can really understand what the fans want to see. The first thing they want is fight and desire and that must always be our baseline. My first message to the players will be that we have to do this together. We’ll try to do our job and I know the fans will be there backing us.”

Lampard’s first game in the dugout will be against fellow Premier League side Brentford in the FA Cup on Saturday.
