Everton called ’embarrassing’ for late Frank Lampard tweet as ‘whole world knew’

Everton's failure to announce the official exit of Frank Lampard for more than four hours after news broke of his dismissal has been slammed by their own fans as 'embarrassing'.

The club took to Twitter at 8:15pm to share details of the departure of the former Chelsea boss, with Sky Sports News going live with the news at just after 3:25pm the same day.

That post, which had been awaited by Everton fans with understandable impatience, was met with fury from social media users who were in disbelief at the delay. One Everton fan simply wrote: "Embarrassing."

A second said: "Thanks for the respect of telling us after literally everyone else in the world Everton doing really well with that better communication promise!"

A third saw the funny side, joking: "Frank was almost having to share an office with the new incoming manger, talk about taking your time announcing the obvious.."

As a fourth fumed: "Shame on you, Everton’s Board of Directors. Shame on you."

The announcement read: "Everton Football Club can confirm that Frank Lampard has left his post as Senior Men’s First Team Manager today. Joe Edwards, Paul Clement, Ashley Cole and Chris Jones have also left the Club. Alan Kelly will remain as goalkeeping coach.

"Everyone at Everton would like to thank Frank and his coaching staff 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. We wish Frank and all his backroom team well for their future in the game.

"The Club has started the process to secure a new manager and will provide updates on the appointment in due course. Paul Tait and Leighton Baines will take training until a new manager is appointed."

With Jamie Carragher agreeing with the decision on Monday Night Football, he also took aim at the structure of the club – mainly owner Farhad Moshiri.

He said: "Their own supporters haven’t got banners in the crowd for Frank Lampard, they’ve got them for Farhad Moshiri and the board. I said on this programme six to 12 months ago Everton are the worst run club in the country, and it wasn’t a flippant remark – I believed it.

"I’m not saying that as an ex-Liverpool player, I’m saying that as an ex-Everton fan."
