Everton academy chief Kevin Sheedy sees Duncan Ferguson as a future manager.
The Scot became a member of the Academy‚Äôs backroom staff in late 2011 and is currently cutting his teeth as a coach with the Club‚Äôs younger players.
‚ÄúDuncan has worked extremely hard. In my opinion he is a good manager in the making,‚ÄĚ Sheedy told evertonfc.com.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôs a very committed and passionate guy who loves being out on the training ground working with the lads who certainly think very highly of him.
‚ÄúMy era as an Everton players was a long time before them but they can really relate to him as a Blue icon so he‚Äôs very well respected, but it‚Äôs as much for his ability as a coach as for his playing reputation.‚ÄĚ
