Everton has sacked Frank Lampard as their coach, and are currently considering hiring Marcelo Bielsa to replace him, as the team is currently in 19th place in the Premier League

Everton have made former Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa their first choice to become the club’s next manager after sacking Frank Lampard on Monday.

It was with a heavy heart that Everton announced the dismissal of Frank Lampard as their manager on Monday afternoon. Despite helping the club avoid the drop last season, Lampard leaves Everton in a dismal 19th place in the Premier League, with only three wins to their name this term and a victory record that is the worst in the division.

The club’s hierarchy has begun the search for Lampard’s successor, with names like Ralph Hasenhuttl, Sean Dyche and Thomas Frank all admired. However, one name that stands out among the rest is that of Marcelo Bielsa, the Argentine coach who has been out of work since leaving Leeds in February last year. Bielsa has already held talks with the club’s hierarchy about taking over and has indicated his willingness to take on the job.

Bielsa is a highly respected figure in the coaching world, with colleagues like Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino praising him as one of the best coaches in the world. He is credited with the success of many Leeds players, including Patrick Bamford and England midfielder Kalvin Phillips, and is known for his unique and effective coaching methods.

However, his appointment would come at a significant cost for Everton. Bielsa and his backroom staff would likely cost the club up to £1m a month, as the Argentine requests a large fee which he then distributes throughout his coaching team. This package deal also includes a non-negotiable coaching staff, which may cause concern among the club’s hierarchy.

If a deal for Bielsa proves too difficult to reach, Everton may turn to other options such as Ralph Hasenhuttl, whose Premier League experience is a factor in the club’s thinking. Sean Dyche, the ex-Burnley boss, has also been discussed, and Brentford’s Thomas Frank is admired by the club, but it’s uncertain if he can be convinced to join.

The dismissal of Lampard also marked the departure of Joe Edwards, Paul Clement, Ashley Cole, and Chris Jones. Paul Tait and Leighton Baines will continue to train until a new manager is appointed, while Alan Kelly will remain as goalkeeping coach.

It’s hard to imagine the sadness and disappointment that must be felt by everyone at Goodison Park. Lampard had arrived with high hopes and expectations, but ultimately leaves the club in a dire situation, with the team fighting to avoid relegation. The future remains uncertain, but one thing is for sure, the road to recovery will not be an easy one. The Toffees’ next game is not until February 4, when Arsenal visit Goodison Park. The pressure is on the Everton hierarchy to make the right decision and bring in a coach who can turn the team’s fortunes around and restore hope to the supporters.
