Where is Danny Murphy now?
Former Premier League midfielder Danny Murphy hung up his boots at the end of the 2012-13 season after a spell playing in the Championship with Blackburn Rovers.
Over a 20 year career, Murphy made over 700 first-team appearances for six clubs winning the FA Cup, the League Cup twice and the UEFA Cup during his time at Liverpool.
He also represented the England national side on nine occasions and was set to play at the 2002 FIFA World Cup finals until a metatarsal injury ruled him out of the tournament.

Immediately upon retiring. Murphy was signed up as a pundit for BBC’s Match of the Day programme where he still appears as a guest on the flagship Saturday night show.
He is also a regular contributor on popular sports radio show talkSPORT and occasionally works as a co-commentor on the BBC.
Away from his broadcasting career, Murphy has also 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. and the job eventually went to his former Reds team-mate Gary McAllister.
Murphy was also one of a number of ex-professionals who sat on the FA’s retrospective diving panel which review suspected cases of what is being called ‘successful deception of a match official’.
