Murphy will complete his UEFA 'B' Licence in November and, coupled with his growing profile as a media pundit, has a firm desire to go into management and coaching.
"I'm sure that managing is easier than coaching," Murphy told the Daily Mail. "Being able to put on good sessions and improve a team, that's tough and that's what I want to do.
"I was a thinker and a talker but I think I became better at helping others around me in a team shape. That's a rare quality in players now, that leadership. Everyone gets on with their own job a little bit more now and I think teams miss that."
