‘We need to get results’ – Frank Lampard insists he ‘does not need reassurances’ over his future at Goodison Park with Everton dropping into the bottom three of the Premier League

    Frank Lampard has insisted he is not seeking assurances over his future in Merseyside despite Everton dropping into the bottom three.

    The Toffees were embarrassed against Brighton earlier in the week, and they have subsequently dropped into 18th spot after results went against them on Wednesday.

    talkSPORT understands that the ex-Chelsea manger is on the verge of being sacked following Everton’s shocking form.

    Everton are yet to win since the return of football after the World Cup break, with their last victory coming against Crystal Palace on October 22.

    Following Friday’s FA Cup clash against Manchester United, Everton are then involved in back-to-back six-pointers against Southampton and West Ham.

    Speaking in his press conference on Thursday, Lampard was asked about whether he is seeking assurances from the board over his position at the club.

    To which he said: “We’ve had private conversations. It’s as simple as that.”

    He added: “I have never and would never seek reassurances. My job is to absolutely focus on the job at hand, day to day and game to game.

    “That’s the absolute reality of it. I actually don’t need reassurances.

    “I come to work to try and improve a little bit every day – myself, the team, the squad and everything so I’m not hunting around for any reassurances.”

    Lampard continued: “I’m not silly, we need to get results, we want to stay in this league – that’s the first thing this year.

    “We’ve just slipped into the bottom three, that’s not my major concern – and I’m not talking away from that – I’m just saying we’re in and around this area, that’s the reality, and if we win our next league game we’ll be out of the bottom three probably.

    ‘So those are just part of the process for me and I can’t affect anything other than that, my point being that I was very aware of what I came into with this job.

    “I want to be a success at this club, and whatever challenges that come I’ll take them head on.”

    Lampard’s uncle Harry Redknapp has told talkSPORT how he fears for his future at Goodison Park.

    Redknapp remarked: “I text him all the time and I sit and follow every game and kick every ball for him, to be fair.

    “I want to see him do well, but I did fear at the start of the year, I must be honest.”
