Frank Lampard 'knows' he is in trouble at Everton after source's sack reveal - pundit

Frank McAvennie has suggested Frank Lampard will be given more time at Everton.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former West Ham striker said Lampard is learning hard lessons at Goodison Park but insisted he is still a good manager.

On Tuesday (15 November), sources told this site that the Toffees have decided to stand by the 44-year-old despite a poor start to the season.

Everton chiefs have been discussing the manager’s position and even talked about a potential swoop for Marcelo Bielsa.

But the club have decided to hold firm with Lampard to see if he can turn things around.

As shown on Sky Sports after a 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth on Saturday (12 November), a large number of security staff were required as the players tried to talk to the fans at full time.

McAvennie insisted the former England midfielder will be aware of the question marks over his position.

I think Frank knows he is in trouble,” he told Football Insider.

Football is a weird business. It is the only place I know where you get rewarded for failing, you will get a good pay off. When you are winning it is the best job on earth, now he is realising it is a lot harder than he expected.

I think he is a good manager, I think he is his own person. Steven Gerrard had Michael Beale who did everything from what I can gather. But I think Frank does it all himself, him and his coaching staff.

They are learning on the job. I think he will still get time at Everton to try and turn it around.
