Many Everton fans have been reacting on social media after interim head coach Duncan Ferguson offered one young supporter a guided tour of Finch Farm.
Ferguson was given the caretaker position following Marco Silva’s sacking after 18-monts in charge, and oversaw our 3-1 win at home to Chelsea last week and will remain in the dugout when we travel to Manchester United on Sunday.
His passion for the club was clear as day when he celebrated the goals hitting the back of Chelsea’s net, rushing up and down the touchline punching the air and hugging ball-boys.
Ferguson may have got a little too carried away last Saturday, in fact, as he later had to come out and apologise for breaking the kids’ ribs, though he refused to say sorry for being passionate about the Blues.
Does Ferguson deserve the head coach job?
Yes, he has the passion for the club
No, he doesn't have the experience
Now, Ferguson has left some supporters feeling very jealous, as the caretaker boss has given one young Evertonian a guided tour of the club’s Finch Farm training facilities, with nowhere off limits.
Ferguson even gave the young fan the Everton-branded sweatband he wore on the touchline as we beat Chelsea last time out, and supporters have been lauding our former striker for his “fantastic” act since.
Here are some of the messages shared…
