Everton caretaker, Duncan Ferguson will not take a stable job at Everton despite a 3-1 win over Chelsea on Saturday. Ferguson yet refuses a permanent stay at Everton, saying that, it is not his focus.
The former Toffees legend is a temporary manager-in-charge for the team over the Chelsea game. And he is not planning to keep a head coach position even with winning the Blues.
Though, Ferguson is an interim coach to replace the former head coach Marco Silva since his dismissal. Following the Merseyside derby, 5-2 loss to Liverpool exits Silva from Everton.
The Scot made a huge impact, with the Toffees playing with all their strengths than they had been under Silva. The smartness and sharpness are seen in their 37 tackles. They have more than any other team in a Premier League match this season.
But, even at lifting Everton up from the relegation area, Ferguson remains adamant about his opinion. Still, saying he will not take the issue to club decision-makers to retain him.
Meanwhile, the interim coach told BT Sport that he is after the success of the team but not him. He also said that his love for the club keeps pushing him and he not doing it for personal benefits.
Ferguson refuses a permanent stay at Everton even with winning Chelsea.
When BT Sport asked about staking his claim for the job. Ferguson told them ”No, honestly, I won’t be saying that. That’s not what I’m saying.
He continues ”I’m just looking to get home and lie down, I think. We’re not looking ahead – I was just looking at this game and that is it, we’re savouring the moment. It’s three fantastic points.
“I think you saw on the touchline how enthusiastic I was, but you know it’s one game, one result. I think I’ve answered the question”.
Though, the Scot is not fully happy with the success, citing that their three goals were terrible. Frank Lampard’s side suffering defensive flaws aids their goals.
Also, they conceded a goal. He is looking on to correcting those faults, the popular former Everton player, Ferguson said. But, he might not be able to reject the offer, if the stakeholders decide to retain him.
