Alan Shearer has been talking to the press on what he can and cannot do in football management, and he says today he could manage a club other than Newcastle. We think everybody knows that.
Alan Shearer – could decide to manage another club
Alan Shearer told the Sun today:
“Why would I say that Newcastle will be the only club for me?â€ “Yes, they are my club and I love them but it doesn’t mean I could never work for anyone else.”
“I couldn’t see myself working at a League Two club.â€ “But you can never rule anything in or out for good and you can never predict what will happen next in football.â€
“This time last week we wouldn’t have been discussing Kevin Keegan as Newcastle manager.”
Some of this is obviously coming from the Sun, who Alan works for, and they are probably pestering him for statements which they can make into news stories.
But we think Alan should decide on his future career action, in private, and do whatever he chooses. But all this debating his options in the press about his various options and what he can do, is not helpful to him or Newcastle United.
We know full well he can manage another club, and we think it has been made clear to him that he cannot manage Newcastle United without prior experience. Where he gets that experience is his choice.
In the poll we are running to the right, 74% would like Alan to be assistant manager at Newcastle United, but that’s with only around 400 votes in right now. If you haven’t voted yet, please let’s know your opinion on this.
This saga needs to be brought to an end â€“ hopefully on Friday. One way or the other.
