Former Fulham captain Danny Murphy admits that he would be interested in managing the club, following the dismissal of Felix Magath.

Danny Murphy has admitted that he is interested in taking over as manager of Fulham.

The Cottagers are without a first-team coach following the dismissal of Felix Magath.

Murphy spent five seasons at Fulham and has claimed that he would be keen on a return to Craven Cottage.

"I care about the club deeply and I've always had a desire to get involved but that's out of my hands," he told BBC Sport.

"I've always said I'd like to go back to Fulham at some point in some capacity because I have an affinity with the supporters there.

"If they did want to speak to me, of course I'd be open-minded to that. I would never disregard something like that."

Murphy made nearly 200 appearances for Fulham and captained the side in the 2010 Europa League final.
