Jamie Carragher has revealed Duncan Ferguson was the Evertonian he feared the most during his playing days.

During an Instagram Live chat with former Blues player Tim Cahill, the Sky Sports pundit spoke about how Liverpool would plan their performances around trying to contain Big Dunc (via Liverpool ECHO).

“My most feared derby opponent? I’d probably say Duncan Ferguson,” Carragher said. “Especially when I got in the team as a kid.”

Yes No

The ex-defender’s first Merseyside derby saw him up against the 6 ft 3 striker, a match in which Ferguson scored. Paul Ince managed to find an equaliser for the Reds but Carragher’s first meeting with the powerhouse Scotsman proved his and the team’s worries were justified.

The 48-year-old played a total of 253 matches for Everton and scored 65 goals in that time (via Transfermarkt).

Not only was Ferguson powerful, he managed to balance that out by being agile on the ball as well as in the air, marking him out as a centre-forward certainly to be feared.

He also enjoyed a goal or two against Everton’s bitter rivals, scoring on five occasions against the Reds. Big Dunc now stands at the hilt of the club for whom he loved playing, side by side with Carlo Ancelotti.

The final word goes to Carragher: “There was a fear and we talked about trying to control him. No doubt.”
