‘Stop looking far, Everton’ – Amokachi picks former teammate Ferguson as Ancelotti’s successor



The Toffees are currently without a manager after their Italian coach left them for a return to the Santiago Bernabeu this week

Nigeria legend Daniel Amokachi has advised Everton to consider the appointment of Duncan Ferguson as their new manager following Carlo Ancelotti’s return to Real Madrid.

The 49-year-old Scot has been developing his coaching skills on Merseyside since 2014 and he was handed an interim role as the first-team coach after the dismissal of Marco Silva in December 2019.

During the short spell before Ancelotti’s arrival at Goodison Park that same month, Ferguson maintained an unbeaten Premier League record as Everton defeated Chelsea 3-1, and they drew against Arsenal and Manchester United in a busy festive period.

The former Scotland international was also an assistant to Ancelotti during the Italian’s one-and-a-half-year stint at Everton.

With keen interest in developments at Everton, Amokachi who is currently a Special Assistant to the President of Nigeria on Sports, urged the club management to give Ferguson a chance to handle the team.

“Stop looking far Everton, Duncan Ferguson is already on the bench,” Amokachi wrote on Instagram.

“He has understudied under few top-class managers in the last decade at the club.

“He has the club at heart, we all can see the passion he shares with the players and fans whenever given the team as an interim manager and his stats are not bad. My take, hopefully, someone is listening.”

Amokachi and Ferguson played together at Everton between 1994 and 1996 before the former left England for a different adventure in the Turkish Super Lig with Besiktas.

The two legends were part of the squad that helped the Toffees win their fifth FA Cup title in the 1994-95 season.
