As per reports from Gianluca Di Marzio in Italy, Duncan Ferguson will stay at Everton even if Carlo Ancelotti becomes the Toffees’ new manager.

After sacking Marco Silva, Everton handed the job to Duncan Ferguson on a temporary basis and he has performed well so far, earning 4 points in 2 matches against top 6 oppositions, with a 3-1 win against Chelsea and a 1-1 draw against Manchester United.

However, many reports suggest that Everton are keen on appointing Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager. Reports further add that initial talks have been held with the Italian Manager and further discussions are ongoing.


Ferguson, reportedly will also have a role to play at the Merseyside club under Ancelotti. Before Marco Silva’s sacking, Ferguson had been working with the first-team coaching staff, and apparently he could return to a similar role under Carlo Ancelotti.

Ferguson would certainly gain more popularity at Goodison Park if Ancelotti kept Ferguson in his coaching staff. The 47-year old has already become a popular face at Everton, and many fans have backed him for the permanent role for the Toffees. However, working under Ancelotti may also end up opening new doors for the Scot.

If the Everton board manages to appoint Carlo Ancelotti as the Manager of the team, then it will surely be a fantastic achievement for the club. And with Duncan Ferguson showing his potential in his early games in-charge, working under Ancelotti would help the Toffees maintain the culture as well as run a cause for Ferguson to inspire them beyond Carlos.
