Everton great Southall: Give job to Duncan

Everton great Neville Southall says the vacant manager’s job should go to Duncan Ferguson.

Everton are seeking a new manager after the sacking of Rafa Benitez.

Speaking courtesy of freebets.com, he told the Liverpool Echo: “Duncan is the only one I’d look at for the manager’s job.

“There are two reasons. One, he knows the club inside out and he knows what’s going on in there and he’ll have seen that.

“He worked under a few Champions League winners now so something must have rubbed off on him from them.

“Duncan will be sat in his house thinking ‘I do a good job every time but they never give me a chance’ so if they turn him down this time I think there are questions for Duncan to ask himself in terms of whether he’s actually wanted at the club and whether he’s always going to be the bridesmaid, never the bride.

“I’d give it him until the end of the season and if he does well then keep him there.”

Southall added: “He could have gone off to another team but he’s shown loyalty to Everton and it’s about time they showed him loyalty by giving him the job.

“Get some good people around him like Leighton Baines and to be fair I think Seamus Coleman could be in that category as well.

“Let’s see how much passion and pride he can get in there because it worked last time and see how things go.

“You either give it to Duncan or go spend £15million on someone who is an unbelievable manager but there aren’t many of those about.

“Are we going to have the same old merry-go-round of nearly-beens or has-beens?”
