Yerry Mina Makes Promise to Everton Fans Who Confronted Him After Club Slipped to 19th in PL Table, Video
- Everton slipped to 19th on the Premier League table after another loss to fellow strugglers Southampton
- There is increasing pressure on the owners to sack Frank Lampard but they are refusing
- Fans confronted defender Yerry Mina after the game seeking assurances of his commitment to the club
Chelsea are not finding things easy at the moment, so is a legend and one of their greatest ever players, Frank Lampard. His first managerial job since he was sacked at Stamford Bridge is not going the way he would have wanted.
Lampard took over the club in January last year and spent the first months of his reign fighting to avoid relegation which he did much to the pleasure of Toffees fans, and exactly a year on, they are set for the same battle.
Club owner Farhad Moshiri faced backlash for his comments backing the coach and blaming the fans for driving exits of top managers at the club, such as Carlo Ancelotti and Rafa Benitez, according to Daily Star.
Mina makes promise to Everton fans
The Merseyside club went into halftime in the lead but two James Ward-Prowse goals including a freekick in the second half condemned Everton to their 10th loss of the season, as reported by Guardian.

In a video circulating on Twitter, the club fans approached defender Yerry Mina in the parking lot after the game, and sought assurances he will stay if the club goes down, and also told him to play his heart out on the pitch.
The Colombian made a promise to the fans that in the event that the club gets relegated, he will remain at the club in the Championship and also made a very sensitive statement.
''I will give my life for this club,'' Yerry Mina to Everton fans.
Mina's contract expires in the summer and there is currently no talks with the club over a renewal.
Lampard admits relegation battle
Sports Brief earlier reported that Everton are fighting relegation battle as admitted by Lampard even before the club slipped into 19th position on the Premier League table.
They have lost half of their Premier League games going into the game against Southampton, and despite taking an early lead, they surrendered it cheaply in the second half.
In just about a year, the former Chelsea manager will be overseeing his second relegation battle. It remains to be seen if the club will survive it or if Lampard would survive and be the one to oversee the club's survival.
