Ex-Blue: I Really Love Everton But Relegation May Be A GOOD Thing
Everton suffering relegation into the Championship from the Premier League this season might be a GOOD thing.
That’s according to former Toffees striker Louis Saha, who spoke exclusively to BoyleSports this week.
The Frenchman, who also admits he was less than convinced by Frank Lampard’s appointment as manager, can’t believe the difficulties Everton find themselves in after years of promise in the top half of the Premier League.
“I really love Everton and it’s got all the potential in the world to do amazing things,” said Saha.
“You see Leicester, West Ham and other clubs doing well, I just don’t understand it.
“It’s not a matter of the player or managers, it’s something else. It needs structure, but if the club goes down for some restoration, maybe that’s the way.
“But the Championship is hard, so I really wouldn’t wish it on him and doing some sort of yo-yo is not always possible.
“Everton need to fight until the end and hopefully Frank Lampard can stay in the job and prove me wrong.”
With three wins in ten Premier League matches under Lampard, Saha doesn’t believe getting rid of the ex-England midfielder is the right thing to do, either.
The pressure was massively eased on Saturday with a 1-0 win over Manchester United, thanks to Anthony Gordon’s first-half goal.
“Sacking him would be a really silly move and will show that the board has made a mistake again,” added Saha.
“They’ve made some bad mistakes. I come back to Lucas Digne. Getting rid of him was a really bad move as he provided for the strikers.”
