Lampard: Suspending Russian deals right for Everton

Frank Lampard backed Everton’s decision to cut all commercial ties with Russian companies following the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

The Toffees suspended their commercial sponsorship arrangements with Russian firms.

And Lampard said they had made the correct decision as it “felt right for the club”.

Everton is among a growing list of organisations to have distanced themselves from Russian sponsorship in a show of support for Ukraine.

Lampard, whose players carried Ukrainian flags onto the pitch ahead of their clash with Manchester City on Saturday, told reporters:

“As I interviewed with the board and [having] a close relationship with the board.

“I have absolute faith that they are making the right decisions, as they see them, in the right way.

“The way we behaved last Saturday against Manchester City.

“I thought we were one of the forerunners of acting well and showing solidarity and unity in the right way.

“I think [cutting ties with Russian sponsors] again is a show of us as a club doing the right thing.

“And it’s a suspension, as the statement said today. And I think it was the right thing to do.

“At that point for me, it’s vital I concentrate on football and the things I’m paid to do, which is to try and win the game in front of us.”

Chelsea’s Russian owner Roman Abramovich announced on Wednesday that he would be selling the club, but Lampard said he had no comment on his former club’s situation.

Lampard won three Premier League titles and four FA Cups as a player at Chelsea.

Before rejoining them for a spell as manager, he said he knew nothing of the internal workings at Stamford Bridge now.

“I only read what you read. But, unfortunately, I’m not at Chelsea anymore,” said Lampard. “I had a fantastic time at Chelsea.

“If I say that you take as you find, I can only be very thankful that I was in the period of the club.

“Roman Abramovich came into and changed the face of it, and on a football level, we were very successful.

“I had unlimited support in my time as a player and manager, for what anyone wants to think from the outside.

“I’ve got no comment on them now. I’m Everton’s manager, and I don’t have enough knowledge to give anything more than that.”
