Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, former Everton defender Michael Ball believes Duncan Ferguson should be given a chance in the Goodison Park dugout.
The Merseyside club are on the lookout for a new manager following Carlo Ancelotti’s shock move to Real Madrid.
They have since been linked with the likes of Nuno Espirito Santo, David Moyes and even Rangers boss and Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.
Should Zaha be a priority for Everton?
Nothing has materialised yet, however, and Ball is now of the opinion that if his old side are not happy with the names that they are currently considering, then they should turn to assistant manager Ferguson.
“If there’s no one there who’s perfect, then give Duncan an opportunity. He’s been there with three or four managers now, he’s worked under them all, he can pick and choose the best out of each and every one and the players would be honestly coached.
“Duncan as the front man, as the main guy, it’s probably what Everton need right now.”
The 49-year-old had a short stint as Everton boss before Ancelotti’s arrival back in the 2019/20 season, where he was able to pick up some brilliant results.
