Duncan Ferguson: Everton legend is happy to be back

The 42-year-old, who scored 72 goals in 273 games, was promoted from his coaching role with the club's under-18s to the first-team set-up and is relishing being alongside Martinez for the visit of West Ham.

"It will be an emotional time for me, I'm very proud," the Scot, who began his new role on Monday having initially rejoined the club in a coaching capacity in 2011, told evertontv.

"It's been fantastic. I've been coming up (to the first team) once or twice a week since the manager came in and he told me he'd like me to come up full-time and I'm delighted.

"I think the idea was to integrate me into the squad and it is a fantastic opportunity for myself.

"It is a great challenge. You are with the best of the best, this is the elite, the best players in the world and you have to make sure you do your job properly."

The former Scotland striker says he expects Everton to push hard to secure a top-four finish.

"We can push really hard for a European spot and the manager is emphasising that," he added.

"We can get some good rewards this year and we are still in the (FA) cup as well."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
