'If It's Football, It's Vital'

KK on AS

Having described the club as being at a particularly low ebb at the current time, King Kev has again admitted he is desperate to get Alan Shearer back at the club in some capacity, if only to act as a glorified cheerleader and raise flagging morale. Speaking yesterday he said:

I've definitely not given up on it. What we have agreed is that he is going to come in training with us to start off with and then we are going to revisit it later when the commitments that he's made to other people are no longer in place.

The door is left absolutely wide open. It's up to Alan and me to come up with the right solution for him coming in here. I've left the door wide open because I respect him and know he would bring something to the party.

He's now got a bit of time to think about it and he will think about it deeply. As he always has done in his life, he will come up with the right decision. I've definitely not given up on it and Alan's not said anything to my knowledge that suggests he doesn't want to do it. I think deep down he does.'

Shearer meanwhile ruled himself out of the running for the Southampton job, instead reiterating his desire to see out his MOTD contract, gain his Pro-Licence and keep on doing charity work.
