Former Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy commented on the suitability of Alan Stubbs and Unai Emery for the Everton managerial job on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (broadcast from 6am, May 23).

Stubbs is in charge of Scottish Championship outfit Hibernian at the moment, while Emery is the current head coach of Spanish club Sevilla.

Everton are on the lookout for a new manager following the departure of Roberto Martinez earlier this month after a disappointing 2015-16 Premier League campaign.

The Sun recently reported that the Merseyside outfit are interested in appointing Emery as their new manager, while Stubbs is a former Everton player and is well-liked by the fans.

Former England international midfielder Murphy has given his opinion on the suitably of the two managers for the Everton job.

“It’s a good shout because he has done a hell of a job and he is well liked at Goodison,” said Murphy about Stubbs on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (broadcast from 6am, May 23). “Whether they would feel he has enough experience, I am not sure."

“He has got a proven track record of winning stuff, hasn’t he?” said Murphy about Emery on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (broadcast from 6am, May 23). “Would he be a risk because he has never managed in this league before? No, he is a top man. He knows what he is doing.”

Everton are one of the biggest clubs in England, and for them to progress and regularly fight for a top-six spot in the Premier League, they need to appoint a capable manager this summer.
