Everton youngster Anthony Gordon has revealed the work of Duncan Ferguson and Carlo Ancelotti convinced him his future was at Goodison Park. The talented teen agreed on a long-term extension with the club this week and signed a five-year contract. The news comes after the attacker enjoyed a breakout campaign under Ancelotti and showed why he is so highly regarded at the club.
Anthony Gordon said “Duncan has been massive for me since I have come up to the first team. He is a person I can rely on to bounce things off, I couldn’t say enough about him and what he is doing for me. He was the one who really pushed for me to come up with the first team a couple of years back. I am thankful to him for that and everything he is doing with me. And Mr Ancelotti has been massive for me. We have a good relationship. He tests me every day and doesn’t allow me to be comfortable. As a young player, you should never be comfortable. That is making me strive to be better every day and never reach the point where I think, ‘I am here, I am comfortable’. His presence around the place is always testing me and keeping me on my toes.”
