Jamie Carragher shouted Frank Lampard on Manchester United signing flop and feels Everton made the right call to sack the Chelsea legend.

Everton confirmed the sacking of manager Lampard on Monday after a 10-game winless run left the Toffees in 19th place in the Premier League.

Lampard was appointed a year ago – replacing Rafa Benitez when the club were 16th and four points above the relegation zone – and helped guide them last term with a game remaining.

But after a disastrous 2022-23 campaign and back-to-back top-flight defeats to relegation rivals Southampton and West Ham, Everton have decided to part ways with the former Chelsea and Derby boss.

Carragher has warned that Everton’s problems run deeper than a managerial switch but ultimately feels the club made the ‘right decision’ to sack him after the former Liverpool defender took a swipe at Lampard’s recruitment.

Carragher told Sky Sports: ‘The supporters probably wanted more change at boardroom level than the manager.

‘But I feel it’s the right decision, I think Frank got the job on the back of Rafa Benitez in a similar race.

‘So, if you come in and have the same run that the previous manager did, I don’t think you can have too many complaints.

‘And Everton are bottom of the league with Southampton at the moment, I don’t think Frank can have too many complaints.

‘But, of course, there are things going on behind the scenes and that’s why Everton fans are so disappointed with things off the pitch.

‘He (Lampard) hasn’t spent much money. They lost Richarlison, who was their best player last season.

‘They have tried to change it, [it was] will always be difficult. But when you look at the attacking players he has brought in…

‘Almost on his first day, he brought in Dele Alli and Donnie van de Beek (on loan) from Manchester United.

‘They didn’t work, weren’t really successful, but this season, they brought in (Neil) Maupe because of (Dominic) Calvert’s injury to Lyon.

‘Dwight McNeil came from Burnley. Again, not huge fees – £20m for Dwight McNeil, £15m for Maupay – but they did nothing, nothing.

The defensive players they’ve brought in have done well in terms of (James) Tarkowski and Connor Cody.

‘But, in terms of the attacking players he’s brought in, they haven’t done anywhere near enough.’

Gary Neville added:[There is] I think there is a hint of sadness from the English managers – there are only three players in the league now, Frank going and Steven Gerrard going, but we always knew Saturday was a top game.

‘West Ham are struggling like mad, big clubs. Everton are struggling like mad, big clubs, and it was always (David) Moyes or Lampard and you look at some of Everton’s mistakes and they are absolutely criminal mistakes.’
