Many Everton fans were taken on a trip down memory lane by one of their former player’s sons – as Andrei Kanchelskis Jr shared a clip of his father in his Everton heyday.
Could Duncan Ferguson manage Everton one day?
Posting a clip of a Toffees performance from 1995 on Twitter, Kanchelskis’ son – an Everton fan himself – looked back on an Everton side that saw off Leeds United 2-0 at Goodison Park with 10 men, thanks to the fancy footwork from his dad:
🙌🏻 10 men and still bossing it! My old man was alright wasn’t he? 😉 https://t.co/bjB5ilgvdp

Fans certainly felt that labelling Kanchelskis Sr as ‘alright’ was doing him a huge disservice, and replied by showing how revered the former Manchester United winger still is on the blue half of Merseyside.
Supporters made clear how highly they rate the Russian, with some suggesting Everton haven’t had a better player since, while plenty still regret the moment he left the club back in 1997.
Below is a selection of replies which show the love the Everton faithful still have for Kanchelskis:
More than alright, special player! If only we could have built a side around him!! Unfortunately wasn’t to be.

A belter. Wish he stayed longer. Was scary good in 95/96

Alright?? One of the best players I’ve seen in an Everton shirt 👍

He’d run rings around defenders and had the ability to put in a quality finish at the end. Don’t think we’ve had a better player since tbh

Was unbelievable mate. Anfield away for his first two goals was stand out. Devastated when he left.

Favourite Everton player I’ve seen live. Had a spell where he was unplayable. Dynamite in his boots.
