Jordan Questions Everton’s Decision To Hire Lampard

Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has questioned Everton’s move for Frank Lampard.

Jordan doubts Vitor Pereira would be any less uncertain if Lampard were to take over.

Explaining how he believes supporters have misread the situation, Jordan told talkSPORT: “Their objection is steeped in emotivity. It’s sentiment over fact.

“They don’t know that Vitor Pereira is not a good manager. And they damn well don’t know whether Frank Lampard is capable of achieving what Everton need.

“Frank Lampard has managed Chelsea, took them to fourth in the league when the previous season they were third, got them onto a run of games that looked decent, got fired and has done nothing since.

“He’s never managed a team that’s at the bottom of the league, he has never managed in real adversity. He has only managed in the comfort zone of having Derby, who were ambitious at the time, and being an elite footballer going into a very well-financed football club.

“He will be going in to a unique environment [at Everton], where the attitude towards the owners is extremely poor, with a group of players that are not good enough in certain respects.

“It is a really big risk on all fronts and Moshiri has got to own it, get out in front of it and fill the vacuum, that is there right now, with information from him.”

    Pure hate Jordan. Lampard took over Chelsea when they were under ban from signing players. Went to the academy and thrust youngsters to the limelight and what a success he made of it. Don’t be jealous- Lamp did extremely well and will replicate it at Everton.
