Frank Lampard close to the Everton bench!

Judging by the information from England, the two-week search is coming to an end, judging by the information from England, and after a certain period of "filtration", it chose the best one. Or at least the one that is considered the best candidate in Goodison Park to succeed Rafa Benitez.

However, the British Telegraph writes, and other reliable media confirm, the new Everton coach will be - Frank Lampard. The English expert conducted the last round of negotiations with the leaders of the club from Liverpool and let them know that he wants a bench at Goodison, so he will return to coaching almost 12 months after he was fired from Chelsea - January 25, 2021.

He could have done it earlier, Crystal Palace offered him to be the initiator of the rejuvenation process at Selhurst Park this summer, then Norwich invited him in November to get them out of the danger zone, and in the end, the Chelsea legend will try to keep Everton above the line.

He was brought into this situation by Rafa Benitez, from the last thirteen championship games of the Spanish manager on the bench, Caramels won only once, and unlike the previous time, shock therapy with Duncan Ferguson did not help (defeat of Aston Villa 0: 1).

and Everton found themselves four points away from the relegation zone. The management of the club had several other candidates in the spotlight, Vitor Pereira - the last filter was taken into consideration when Carlo Ancelotti took over the bench - and the mentioned Ferguson, the current acting coach of Caramel, but after the last round of negotiations, they decided for Lampard.

Wayne Rooney as a option

Wayne Rooney was also highly ranked, however, the Manchester United legend himself rejected the possibility of taking over the club at this moment, because he has unfinished business in Derby County.

"Everton contacted my agent and asked me to come for a job interview, but I turned down the offer. I believe I will be a Premier League coach and I am 100 percent ready for that." "However, I have a job in the Derby that is important to me," Wayne Rooney, who is with Derby, despite 21 points taken away, eight points from escaping from the danger zone.

Frank Lampard's previous adventure at Chelsea did not go as expected, and Tuchel revived the team after Frank's departure, but Everton believe that the former great midfielder would be of great help to them.
