Newcastle United icon Alan Shearer has said he is unaware of his reported link to become manager at Sheffield Wednesday.
Alan Shearer – phantom link to Sheffield Wednesday job
Alan told BBC Sport that he is unaware of the interest from the consortium led by businessman Geoff Sheard.
Sheard is trying to buy out Sheffield Wednesday’s former chairman Dave Allen, and yesterday in one of the Sunday papers, it was reported that Shearer was being tapped to become the new manager of Wednesday.
Not only that, but he was also being given a Â£20M transfer kitty to work with, just to make the story a little bit more juicy.
But we thought the story seemed a little dodgy, and after all it was the News Of The World.Â Â 😀
Shearer and other top names must really get a laugh at some of the stories they appear in on Sundays, and the phantom news associated with them.
The reason we think Alan was not aware of the link reported yesterday,Â is that the story has no truth in it whatsoever.
Sorry to be so direct.
