Everton caretaker manager Ferguson: This an attractive club

Everton caretaker manager Duncan Ferguson insists the job is attractive.

A run of 10 defeats in 13 Premier League matches has resulted in the sacking of Rafael Benitez and left the Toffees just four points above the relegation zone at the winter break.

However, Ferguson said an upturn in results would make a huge difference to the perspective of the situation, even at a club with no director of football, head of recruitment or scouting chief.

“This is an attractive club for somebody but the first thing we need is to get results," the Scot told evertontv.

“We need to keep everybody galvanised and keep the spirit and fighting mentality there and try our best to get the next result.

“You just want the players to work as hard as they possibly can and I am sure you saw that (in Saturday's defeat to Aston Villa).

“But we need to work (during the current break) on trying to get a result."
