Frank Lampard is looking for a new job.
The former England international and New York City FC forward was sacked by Everton on Monday.
Everton are penultimate in the 20-team English Premier League and are in the relegation zone in one of their worst seasons to date.
The Blues have been stranded without an EPL win since October. The team’s slump of six losses and two draws is Lampard’s longest unbeaten streak in the league.
Lampard’s last game as manager was another defeat as his side suffered a 2-0 loss to West Ham United at the London Stadium on Saturday.
“We were disappointed with the result, especially when we had a lot of control between both boxes. It’s obviously disappointing to lose 2-0,” he said at the post-match press conference. . “The game went as planned until the 20th minute or so. The stadium was quiet and we had the ball.
“It’s probably become a problem for us lately. In the final third, it’s not clinical enough, dynamic or tough enough. Especially in a good team like West Ham with good individuals, you always concede. It could change the face of the game.”
Lampard scored 15 goals in 29 appearances for NYCFC in 2015-16.
He also scored 29 goals in 106 appearances for England.
