Big Dunc reappears at Goodison
Wednesday 19 October 2011
Duncan Ferguson, who retired from football five years ago, has returned to the club where he was idolised by the supporters in a coaching capacity.
The former Scotland and Everton striker, 39, well known for his fits of aggression and problems with authority, has made the first steps to becoming an authority figure himself by working at Everton assisting Alan Irvine, the club's academy manager, for several weeks.
"I didn't foresee him going into coaching when I had him as a player," David Moyes, the Everton manager, said. "But Duncan has been away for five years and I think he misses the smell of football a wee bit. He's putting the hours in."
