More football news are out and it has been revealed that Damien Duff is keeping his fingers crossed that club legend Alan Shearer will eventually be appointed as the Newcastle manager.
The 30-year-old Republic of Ireland international winger is convinced that the former Magpies skipper, who took charge for the final eight games of last season, is the only man for the job.
Duff told reporters that for him, it definitely has to be Alan Shearer. He also said that the eight weeks he had with Shearer was enjoyable. Duff also said that it was unfortunate that Newcastle didn’t stay up, but it was the most enjoyable eight weeks he has had playing football.
He also added that the training was great and there was proper professionalism and discipline at the club. Duff believes that discipline was lacking over the last three years, but Shearer came in and changed things.
Duff also said that anyone who does come in and decides to buy the club, they should seriously consider Alan Shearer to be the main man.
