Murphy also provides match co-commentary on the BBC and was an important part of the commentary team during the station’s coverage of Euro 2016.

Danny Murphy has expressed a desire to go into management and coaching once he has completed all of his UEFA coaching badges.

In 2015 he was approached by Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers to work with him in a coaching role but it never materialised.

The job eventually went to his former Liverpool team mate Gary McAllister.

In 2016, Danny Murphy took part in the Soccer Aid game at Old Trafford as part of the England team managed by Sam Allardyce.

In July 2017 Murphy represented England in Star Sixes, a six-a-side indoor international tournament at the O2 in London featuring some of the world’s most iconic footballers.

Murphy is one of a number of ex-professionals who sit on the FA’s retrospective diving panel which review suspected cases of what is being called ‘successful deception of a match official’.
