Everton FINALLY confirm Frank Lampard has been sacked more than five hours after Sportsmail broke the story, as they thank boss for his service with his coaching staff also departing

Everton have confirmed the sacking of manager Frank Lampard after 357 days in charge. 

A statement released at 8.15pm on Monday confirmed that a number of his coaching staff have also been let go.

It comes more than five hours after Sportsmail announced his departure, which saw the former Chelsea midfielder told his services were no longer required in a phone call with Everton owner Farhad Moshiri.

The end felt inevitable after a poor run of form that left Lampard on the brink, and Sportsmail understands Marcelo Bielsa is Everton's No 1 choice to take over

Lampard leaves the club 19th in the Premier League and winless since October, with Saturday's 2-0 loss to West Ham extending their poor run to 11 losses in their last 14 games.

The 44-year-old spent Sunday in discussions with Moshiri, Chairman Bill Kenwright and Kevin Thelwell, Everton’s Director of Football.

He was aware the appetite for managerial change had grown but had been left uncertain about what direction the club might take, as some conversations he had with Moshiri centred on his views on recruitment.

The sacking leaves Everton on the hunt for their seventh manager in seven years, with Carlo Ancelotti the only one to leave of his own accord.

It will come as a personal blow to Lampard, who is believed to have grown fond of the club and was enjoying living in the North West. 

He leaves Goodison Park having won just 12 of his 44 games in charge of the club, with 23 losses in that time - leaving him with a win percentage of 27 per cent.

'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.'
