Coyle: Murphy opinion could change with time

Bolton boss Owen Coyle believes Danny Murphy may well change his mind about the influence of managers on dangerous tackling if the Fulham midfielder becomes a coach himself.Murphy caused a storm last week when he pointed the finger of blame for reckless challenges at the managers of Stoke, Blackburn and Wolves.Coyle - whose team take on Stoke in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday - has criticised Murphy for singling out individuals and feels the former Liverpool player will have more authority to comment on the matter if he decides to go into management."We send our players out to work hard and play well," Coyle said. "Danny Murphy is a terrifically talented player and in time, if Danny decides to dip his toe in the water in terms of coaching and management, then I think if you speak to him, he might have a different perspective or angle on it."Not having had that experience of being a manager, I think it is a difficult one for him to call. I think what he said - I might be wrong on this, but I'd imagine he'll probably regret some of that."Particularly to mention any club or individual was very wrong because you look at all the clubs involved and the managers they have - these people are fantastic at what they do."
