As per Phil Kirkbride in the Liverpool Echo, Everton are set to end their manager search and confirm that Frank Lampard is the new manager. After Friday’s final interview day down in London with the Everton board the former Chelsea and Derby Manager has beaten the likes of Vitor Pereira and Duncan Ferguson to the role.
The new Everton Manager has supposedly been working on building up his backroom during his sabbatical. Jody Morris, who was Lampard’s Assistant Manager during his time at Chelsea and Derby County doesn’t look to be joining him at Everton. Highly rated Chelsea coaches, Anthony Barry and Joe Edwards do look likely to form some of his backroom staff.
