Exclusive: Fry talks up potential new Everton boss amid Benitez furore

Barry Fry insists that Everton fans would absolutely love the appointment of Duncan Ferguson as their new manager.

The Toffees lost Carlo Ancelotti earlier this summer, as he departed to return to Real Madrid, where he won the Champions League in a previous stint.

Everton have subsequently been linked with a clutch of new managers, most notably the former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez.

Do you want Benitez at Everton?

No thanks!

No thanks!

Yes please!

Yes please!

It remains to be seen if the Toffees will actually formalise that interest, given that there has been a vocal backlash towards that interest from supporters.

Fry thinks that a deal to make Ferguson their new boss, following his stint as an assistant to Ancelotti, would be an excellent appointment.

Ferguson has previously been given the reigns following the sacking of Marco Silva and the former star striker famously guided the club to a pulse-pounding 3-1 win over Chelsea at Goodison Park.

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, he said: “The Everton fans would be happy with that as well. They’d get behind him, I think the club would get behind him, they’ve got a Director of Football who might help him in the transfer market, but he’d be very much his own man and it’d be an interesting appointment.

“How many years do you be assistant manager, taking in all the coaches, and the responsibility and things like that without getting the heads up to go and be your own boss? I don’t know, be interesting to watch that pan out though to be fair.”
