Newcastle boss Kevin Keegan remains convinced Alan Shearer will manage the club one day.

The two men held talks over Shearer´s appointment to the coaching staff within days of Keegan´s return to St James´ Park, although his other commitments have as yet proved an obstacle.

But Keegan told a fans´ phone-in on BBC Radio Newcastle on Thursday: "The next time this job comes up - and I am hoping it is not going to be for at least three and a half years, obviously - Alan´s name is going to be top of the list."
