Jamie Carragher, a former Liverpool center-back, has slammed Frank Lampard for signing out a Manchester United flop, Donny van de Beek.
Carragher also insisted that Everton made the right call to sack Lampard, a former Chelsea manager.
Everton announced the sacking of manager Lampard on Monday evening.
This comes after a ten-game winless run, with Everton left in the 19 position on the Premier League table.
Lampard was appointed last year, replacing Rafa Benitez when Everton were 16 position and four points above the relegation zone.
The former England midfielder helped guide the Toffees to safety last season with one game to spare.
But following a disastrous 2022-2023 campaign and back-to-back Premier League defeats to relegation rivals Southampton and West Ham United, Everton have decided to sack the former Derby County coach.
“But I do feel that it’s the right decision, I think Frank [Lampard] got the job on the back of Rafa Benitez having a similar sort of run,” Carragher said on Sky Sports.
“So, if you come in and have a similar sort of run that the previous manager had, I do not think you can have too many complaints.
“And with Everton bottom of the [Premier League] league with Southampton at the moment, I don’t think Frank can have too many complaints.
“He [Frank Lampard] has not spent a lot of money. They lost Richarlison, who was their best player last season.
“They have tried to replace him, [it was] always going to be difficult to. But when you look at the attacking players who he has brought in.
“Almost on his first day, he brought Dele Alli in and Donny van de Beek from Manchester United.
“They didn’t work, were not really a success.”
