‘The Everton players aren’t good enough but neither is Frank’ – Former Nigerian international, Victor Anichebe tells his former club to sack Lampard and re-hire Sam Allardyce
Former Everton striker, Victor Anichebe has called for the club to sack Frank Lampard following their 3-2 defeat to relegation rivals Burnley on Wednesday April 6.
Burnley came from behind to claim victory and are now just one point behind the Toffees in the fight for survival.
Taking to Instagram to share a series of posts, Anichebe made his frustrations known and said Lampard should be sacked as manager after just more than two months in charge at Goodison Park.
He wrote: ‘Too late…should’ve brought him on 10 mins ago it was obvious… DCL (Dominic Calvert-Lewin) has been poor.
‘The players aren’t good enough but neither is Frank. As much as I love him as a player and he looks a top guy.
‘Everton will 100% go down if a change isn’t made.’
After the final whistle, Anichebe suggested that Everton should go for their former manager Sam Allardyce.
Along with a picture of Allardyce, Anichebe wrote: ‘I said it weeks ago…y’all laughed. Some said rather go down with dignity. Okkkkk.’
In another post on Wednesday night, he wrote: ‘Apologies if I don’t respond tonight, I just can’t be bothered. So… The players are responsible first and foremost. But Everton’s board is absolutely horrendous. The money they’ve wasted, the sackings of influential staff like
(Dan Donachie), not letting Marcel Brands actually do his job, bringing in Rafa (Benitez), creating a complete disconnect with fans and club.
‘Next – appointing Lampard (who is a good coach) but appointing him when you know you’re in a relegation battle with a tough run in… was absurd… him getting Alli who is a luxury player… in a relegation fight… baffling.
‘If something doesn’t happen tonight they are 100% going down. At the moment it’s 60%. Keep the faith.’
Anichebe made 168 appearances for the Toffees between 2006 and 2013 in which he scored 26 goals.
Everton will play Manchester United next on Saturday, and could drop into the relegation zone if they fail to win.
