Alan Shearer received the CBE from the Duke of Cambridge yesterday and it was another honor for the Newcastle United legend.
There’s no doubt that Shearer is a big name and a big personality in football and we wonder how long it will be before he has some official role to play In Rafa’s revolution going on at Newcastle United – his “project” as Rafa calls it.
It was interesting the two of them met for coffee in mid-October and it’s clear Rafa rated Alan as a great striker when he was playing – that’s not a big shock.
Alan Shearer – get him back as part of the club
Rafa also talked to Alan before he took the Newcastle job in March and we’re sure he would have checked things out with the former striker before he got everything agreed to in May and had the many clauses all written down as part of his contract.
Alan Shearer really is a living legend and it would be great if he could be given some official position by Rafa at Newcastle United.
We’re sure Mike Ashley would not object – he’s not that daft.
Shearer is a very busy guy these days with his BBC Match of the Day commitments and everything he does as part of his Alan Shearer Foundation for which he received the CBE yesterday.
But there has to be some job Rafa can create for the former Newcastle number 9 and have Alan be part of what we hope is a very successful Rafa Benitez era coming up on Tyneside.
What do you think?
