Duncan Ferguson has been appointed as the Everton caretaker manager, with the club confirming he will be in charge of their 'upcoming matches'.
Everton were without a coach since Sunday after Rafa Benitez was sacked following the club's 2-1 defeat to Norwich on Saturday. Benitez joined the Toffees during the summer, replacing Carlo Ancelotti, how moved to Real Madrid.
He started the season well, but the team's performances dwindled after the first weeks, partly due to injuries to key players as well as positive Covid-19 cases.
"Duncan Ferguson has been appointed as Everton caretaker manager for the Club’s upcoming games," a statement from the club read.
The Toffees are currently 16th on the table with 19 points, having won once in the last five matches.
