Arsenal sacked Unai Emery earlier today after Thursday’s 2-1 Europa League loss to German club Eintracht Frankfurt.
Asked if it was inevitable that Arsenal would sack Emery, Lampard said: “I wouldn’t say inevitable, nothing’s inevitable in football. We’re used to a few surprises, especially in the last few weeks.
“It’s not nice I know the job, I work hard here and everyone wants to be successful. You have a work ethic and an idea, and it doesn’t always go the way you want it, and clubs then make a decision.
“We’re all in that category. It’s a shame because from the outside he looks like a man who gave everything in the role, and he moves on.”
