The Newcastle club has been quick to deny that Shearer has been sacked from his position of Club Ambassador.
Alan Shearer – not sacked
Alan Shearer – Club Statement
Alan Shearer had a contract for ambassadorial duties which ran out at the end of last season.
As a gesture of goodwill from the Club, Alan was given a complimentary corporate box back in June for use at St. James’ Park and the Club continues to have an excellent relationship with its all-time greatest goalscorer.
Any suggestion that Alan was stripped of this role because of recent events is completely inaccurate.
It’s good the club put that story to rest quickly, and indeed the story originated in the Daily Mail, but was then given some credence by being reported in the Telegraph.
It seems to us the story was put out to discredit the current regime, and as we said the club has done the right thing to kill the story.
