Everton fans have been reacting to a picture taken of caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson following their Carabao Cup exit to Leicester City on Wednesday.
Could Duncan Ferguson manage Everton one day?
The Toffees were eliminated from the quarter-final stage after the game ended 2-2 after normal time.
After the Foxes’ James Maddison and Jonny Evans gave the visitors an early advantage, the Toffees fought back in the second half through Tom Davies and a 91st-minute equaliser from veteran Leighton Baines.
After the game, fans were talking on Twitter about a certain picture that was taken in the press conference room of Goodison Park.
A really emotional Duncan Ferguson tonight.
He looks absolutely devastated.
I hope he gets a top role under the new manager.
He’s given absolutely everything back to the club.
Goodison Park has got it’s energy and spirit back recently and it’s all down to him. 💙 pic.twitter.com/BOt659tsei

Ferguson looked dejected as he answered questions about the affair, which the fans have hugely brought into since he took over the job from Marco Silva.
Supporters were sympathetic towards Ferguson after seeing the image and made their feelings clear about him on social media.

Was and still is a hero to me and if I’m honest I can’t believe the impact he’s had in such a short time. As expected he has been passionate but his teams and subs have shown a tactical awareness that I didn’t think he would bring to the table.

He’s probably saved our season. Given the players and the fans the belief. Just need to be backed in Jan and we will fly up the table
