Where is Alan Shearer now?
A legend of the Barclays Premier League and it’s all time top scorer, Alan Shearer retired from playing at his beloved Newcastle United in 2006.
Upon retiring from playing, Shearer briefly managed Newcastle United in 2009 but this was a short term plan for the last eight games of the season and he was unable to save them from relegation to the Championship.

After England’s dismal performance in Euro 2016 and the subsequent sacking of Roy Hodgson, Shearer threw his hat into the ring to become the next manager.
It was also revealed that he had applied before Hodgson’s appointment in 2012 but was knocked back due to his lack of managerial experience.
In September 2016, a statue of Shearer was unveiled at St James Park with his famous arm in the air scoring pose. The cost of the 9 foot statue was in the region of £250,000.
In June 2017, Alan Shearer was set to sue his former financial advisor and also his pension specialist Suffolk Life for £9 million, claiming that he was given negligent financial advice.

Alan Shearer was a guest on Sky Sports programme The Fantasy Football Club in December 2014 where he picked the eleven best players he had ever played with in the #One2Eleven section of the show.
Alan Shearer’s #One2Eleven (4-3-3 Formation)
GK – David Seaman – imposing and commanding he gave his back four great authority and they trusted him which is important.
RB – Gary Neville – a very good defender and organised who liked going forward and getting balls into the box.
LB – Stuart Pearce – epitomised everything that was right about English football, you always knew what you were going to get from him on the pitch.
CB – Colin Hendry– loved to put his head in where it hurts, heroic and played a huge part in Blackburn Rovers winning the Premier League in 1995.
CB – Tony Adams – I had many battles with him over the years but we always shook hands at the end of the game. Very tough and a top defender.
CM – Rob Lee – very underestimated player, he could do everything in midfield whether is be marshalling or sitting in front of the back four.
CM – Paul Gascoigne – a genius with the football at his feet and great for the dressing room. A great player.
CM – Paul Scholes – a sort of silent assassin, you have to play with him to appreciate how good he actually is. A must have in the midfield.
Forward – Teddy Sheringham – we had a great partnership for England and he was a calming influence for me.
Forward – Matt Le Tissier – what he lacked in fitness he made up for in natural ability. Great in dead ball situations with unbelievable free kicks and penalties.
Forward – Les Ferdinand – had only one season with him at Newcastle United but we scored 49 goals between us. Had a great presence and had one of the best leaps I have ever seen.
