Everton assistant manager Duncan Ferguson is not a fan of the newly introduced winter-break.

The next fortnight marks the first-ever winter rest with Everton having next week off after facing Crystal Palace at Goodison Park.

But Ferguson believes the supporters are missing out as a consequence of the decision.

“I don’t like it because the fans can’t go away,” Ferguson told Football Daily.

“For me, I enjoy the football and have a great lifestyle but the fans can’t go on holiday.

“The fans are missing out – so I don’t agree with it.”

Carlo Ancelotti has confirmedEverton will not be allowed an overseas break during the period of inactivity.

“The plan for the winter break is to give some rest to the players, maybe four or five days, then start to train here.

“I want to stay here in Finch Farm because we have a fantastic training ground. We don’t need to move around the world to travel, it’s better to stay here.”
