Blackburn Rovers strongly consider Duncan Ferguson as new manager, prepared for major Everton exit

Everton legend Duncan Ferguson is being strongly considered by Blackburn Rovers and could be appointed as their new manager, according to Adam Brown.

The ESPN writer has reported that the Toffees legend is now prepared to leave Goodison Park in what would be a sad start to the summer.

Ferguson was considered for the main job at Everton before Frank Lampard was appointed, and instead stayed on as a coach despite his clear desire to make the step up.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Brown shared the big update that not many will appreciate around Goodison Park given his past.

“Blackburn Rovers strongly considering appointing Duncan Ferguson as manager,” he wrote.

“Everton assistant is prepared to leave.”

Not good.

This would be a huge loss to the club.

Ferguson has been the one constant around the squad for years now, and this exit could really disrupt things before the players return for pre-season in weeks’ time.

The Goodison Park icon has been the one man who has stepped up into interim roles and basically saved the club on numerous occasions, but it looks as though it has been one too many times now.

After doing that, Ferguson likely expected to be handed the main job at the club now, but instead, he has been overlooked time and time again.

It has worked out well, as it could have done with him in charge, with Frank Lampard guiding the club to safety in our most recent Premier League season.

Blackburn could offer an interesting role though, and the task of getting back to the Premier League after way too many years away at Ewood Park which has seen Tony Mowbray come and go.

This is one to watch, albeit through our fingers.
