Shearer remains 'in limbo'

Published Add your comment

Alan Shearer received an unnecessary reminder of his enduring popularity in Newcastle after breaking his silence on the uncertainty over his future on Sunday night.

Magpies boss Shearer admitted he is still "in limbo" with regards to the managerial situation at St James' Park despite making clear two months ago he wants the job full-time. Shearer, 38, took over on a short-term basis in April and, despite being unable to spare the club relegation to the Championship, is keen to continue.

"I know as much as you," said Shearer, who delighted a 33,000 crowd with the winning goal for an England XI in a 3-2 victory over a Germany side in a charity match in honour of Sir Bobby Robson at St James' Park.

Newcastle, however, continue to stall on a long-term appointment as owner Mike Ashley seeks a £100million buyer for the club.

Shearer added: "I would dearly love it to be sorted out one way or the other then the club can move forward.

"I am the same as everyone else, I am in limbo. I don't know what is going on.

"Everyone is telling me there are people in to buy the club. If that is the case, then great.

"I'm a fan like everyone else and I don't like to see the situation the club is in."
