Former Tottenham Hotspur manager, Harry Redknapp, has warned Everton coach, Frank Lampard, that he has a ‘massive job on his hands as the Toffees fight relegation.
Redknapp said this while reacting to Everton’s Premier League 5-0 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur on Monday.
The former manager, who is Lampard’s uncle, believes it would be very difficult for the Chelsea legend to keep Everton out of relegation this season because they are in desperate trouble.
He told talkSPORT: “They’re just a very poor group of players. I watched it on TV and Jamie Carragher said it was a Championship back four.
“If you go through, man-for-man, it’s a poor outfit. They have recruited badly, got no legs in midfield, the little boy Allan can’t run and get around the pitch.
“It is only the young lad [Anthony Gordon] who showed any life and played with some energy. They really are a poor outfit.
“You look at their managers, they have had Champions League winning managers. Ancelotti could not get a tune out of the club, Rafa Benitez the same.
“They have gone through good managers. The recruitment has just been shocking at the club.
“They are average players, average characters. Frank has his work cut out. If he keeps them up then he has done very well because they are in desperate trouble.”
“They are not good enough and are a very average group of players. Lampard has got a massive job on his hands,” he added.
The defeat against Tottenham means Everton is in the 17th position on the log with 22 points from 25 games.
