Everton sacked Frank Lampard after less than a year in charge and now they have been linked with a legendary manager.
Lampard, 44, replaced Rafael Benitez with the team 16th in the table and helped Everton avoid relegation.
The club thanked Lampard “for their service during what has been a challenging 12 months”.
“Frank and his team’s commitment and dedication have been exemplary throughout their time at the club, but recent results and the current league position meant this difficult decision had to be taken,” added a club statement.
Now Everton have been strongly linked with former Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa.
Famous for working his players to the limits of their fitness and beyond, this story has emerged about his reluctance to take the job.
“Marcelo Bielsa has told Everton the team is too slow to play the way he wants & they must prioritise pace before window closes, if he is to replace Frank Lampard. Argentine interested in job but has concerns after providing analysis of squad.”
Here are some reactions to the potential of him taking over…
This simply sums up the man, a genius but it is a fine line…
