Robson: Shearer can save Magpies

Published Add your comment

Sir Bobby Robson believes Alan Shearer has the "clout" to turn ailing Newcastle around.

The Magpies head into tonight's Barclays Premier League clash with Manchester City sitting second bottom of the table and reeling from a traumatic start to the new season.

"Alan will make a good manager. He has got clout. He had that in the dressing room as a player, he loved the club. He wanted training and everything around the club right." Robson told The Sun.

"Alan might not have any experience, but he knows what the club is all about, he knows the supporters, he knows how they feel and he'd be dedicated to it,

"The one thing he hasn't got is experience and to run a club like Newcastle you'd need an experienced man.

"So if Alan came in, he'd need someone else to coach for him or be a good liaison with him.

"What Newcastle need is a top manager and without that they won't succeed."
