Phil Neville admits it is flattering to be linked with the manager's job at Everton and believes he has the experience.
Neville, who has called time on his Toffees playing career, is one of the names in the frame to replace David Moyes at Goodison Park now that the Scot has moved on to Manchester United.
And the former England international believes the set-up at Everton is such that there is no reason for the man who replaces Moyes to struggle.
"It is flattering to be linked with the Everton job," said Neville, quoted in The Times.
"There is a structure in place where the new man who comes in will not have that much to do.
"I am at the end of my career and I am looking to get into coaching and management. It's just whatever direction the club want to take.
"It would be a good job. But I know there are players who have gone into jobs and failed. I have prepared. 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."
