Duncan Ferguson thinks he is likely to take charge of Everton’s Carabao Cup quarter-final against Leicester on Wednesday. However, he had reiterated he does not want a full-time job.
Everton drew 1-1 with Manchester United at Old Trafford. Earlier on, they had a 3-1 win over Chelsea in an impressive start under the caretaker manager.
“I think I will be.” Said Ferguson.
“it’s a quick turnaround for a new guy to come in before Wednesday. But I need to speak to the directors.”
Everton sacked Marco Silva after three consecutive defeats that took them into the relegation zone. However, they have been revitalized under their former striker, Ferguson who had been on the coaching staff since 2014.
Victor Lindelöf’s own goal gave them the lead at United. Nonetheless, Mason Greenwood equalized with 13 minutes left.
Ferguson says he is happy to help the club out. On the other hand, he thinks he is not the right man to take over the job right now.
“I think it’s buying them a bit of time to get the right man in. A couple of results, they can make the process more diligent.” Said the former Scotland international.
“We need the best manager in the world. I’ve not got the experience. I’m all for us bringing in a top manager. And if I can be part of it, great.”
Ferguson is happy with his players who have picked up four points from two difficult games against the “big six” side.
“They seem to be motivated, they are in a perilous position and understand that. They have to fight for the shirt and that’s what I’m doing.” He said
“That’s what they should have been doing all season. I have managed to galvanize them and pushed them on.”
Everton defender, Keane hence reported, “He (Ferguson) has brought the basics back. We know our shape well. We are working hard for each other. Getting stuck in and the last few games have worked.”
