Newcastle United's Kevin Keegan Says No To Alan Shearer

Eddy ShearyadiCorrespondent IJanuary 25, 2008

A BBC report reveals today that Newcastle manager Kevin Keegan has confirmed that Alan Shearer will not be his assistant—but insists he could still have a role with the club.

I have personally thought that the posibility of Big Al as King Kev's assistant was as thin as skin couple days ago. And it gets even worse—Shearer told the Sun a couple days ago that he didn't see Newcastle as the only club that he can manage.

The news would be disappointing for the Toon Army since the expectation was very high to see them pairing together for Newcastle.

King Kev still sees the opportunity for Shearer to have a position within his new set up at St James' Park, but definetely not as the assistant.

Now, this may result in new speculations about who is actually going to fill the position as Keegan's assistant on his second return as Newcastle manager. The likes of Dennis Wise and Chris Coleman have been linked to the position couple weeks ago.
