The ex-Everton player, who also managed the Toffees during three spells throughout the 1980s and 1990s, believes that Ferguson has all the hallmarks required to step into the Goodison hot seat and replace Moyes, who will begin a new chapter in his managerial career when he becomes Manchester United boss on July 1st.
Kendall said: “Duncan would be a popular choice with a lot of people.
“I think he would be the perfect man and I would really like to see him being given the chance.
“He is the type of character who could handle the pressure. He would have a presence and it really could work with someone perhaps a little bit older alongside him.
“The big thing about Duncan is he would have the appreciation of the fans straight away. David Moyes had that. He had the respect of the fans and that is important.
“Duncan has pledged his loyalty to Everton by coming back. He knows the game and would prove a very good choice.”
Ferguson is already viewed by some Evertonians as a Toffees hero for some of his exploits during two spells as a player at L4, but would his appointment be the right one for Everton at this moment in time?
