Phil Neville is interested in replacing the outgoing Everton manager David Moyes.
The 36-year-old has already begun work on securing his coaching qualifications as he weighs up his future following the announcement that he will not be renewing his playing contract at Goodison Park.
The former England international admitted he is flattered to be linked with taking over from Moyes once the Scot leaves for Manchester United.
“It is flattering to be linked with the Everton job,” he told The Times.
“It’s just whatever direction the club want to take. But I know there are players who have gone into jobs and failed.
“I am at the end of my career and I am looking to get into coaching and management. I have prepared for the last five seasons and I have some nice decisions to make.
“I have had a lot of experience, studying coaching practices. I have been away with England Under-21s. I’m half-prepared for what I’m going into.”
Neville has also been linked with the manager’s position at Stoke City by a number of bookmakers after the club parted company with Tony Pulis on Tuesday.
