Danny Murphy has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show on TalkSPORT, which was broadcast on May 23rd, that he doesn’t believe Ryan Giggs will become manager of either Everton or Aston Villa this summer.
Giggs is currently working as Manchester United’s assistant manager, but there has been speculation over his future, with Louis van Gaal set to be sacked.
Giggs was reportedly lined up to be the man to replace Van Gaal, but instead United have turned to Jose Mourinho to turn them into title contenders again.
It remains to be seen whether the Red Devils legend will stay on in his current role at Old Trafford, with Giggs known to want to become a manager in the future.
Both Everton and Aston Villa are currently on the look out for new managers, after experiencing poor seasons this past campaign.
Everton parted company with Roberto Martinez recently, while Villa are looking for someone to takeover from caretaker boss Eric Black.
However, when asked whether Giggs could end up at Everton, Murphy did not think it was a possibility.
“No, the fans are craving someone who has won things,” Murphy said. “They won’t take a risk at Everton. I’m not sure he’ll go.”
Murphy’s response when asked whether Giggs could take the Villa job was similar.
“If I was him and I was given the opportunity to work under Mourinho for another couple of years [I would stay].” he added. “He’ll be ready after that. He’s got loads of time.”
At the moment Unai Emery, Manuel Pellegrini and Frank De Boer are amongst the favourites to take over at Everton.
Meanwile, Nigel Pearson and Roberto Di Matteo are considered the most likely candidates to get the Villa job.
