Danny Murphy called for struggling Fulham to sack blundering manager Felix Magath – but revealed that he hasn’t held any talks about returning to Craven Cottage.

The former Fulham captain told Talksport that Magath, a controversial figure at the west London club, ‘should go’ immediately after the Whites were beaten by league leaders Nottingham Forest last night. The midfielder, who led the Londoners to the Europa League final in 2010, has been widely linked with a coaching role or even a managerial appointment at his old club but confirmed to Colin Murray that he had no discussions with his former employers.

Murphy said: “I haven’t spoken to anybody yet. I haven’t had any conversations. I have a deep fondness for the club and never say never about going back. Of course I’d love to be involved at some point. But what worries me, whether it was me or anybody else going in, if they do get rid of Felix, is what they are left with because lots of good characters and good leaders have been let go.”
