Al speaks: Still in the dark

Al speaks: Still in the dark

Speaking to the media after being put on the spot at the Sir Bobby Robson Trophy match, Alan Shearer gave an upfront statement about just how little he knows regarding the current state of takeover affairs. Shearer said:

'I know as much as you. I would dearly love it to be sorted out one way or the other then the club can move forward.

I am the same as everyone else, I am in limbo. I don't know what is going on. Everyone is telling me there are people in to buy the club. If that is the case, then great.

I don't know where that's come from (walking away), it's certainly not from myself. I want it sorted out as quickly as everyone else does. I'm a fan like everyone else and I don't like to see the situation the club is in.'

Meanwhile speaking about Sir Bobby he said:

'It's nice to be back playing a special game for a special man. He means a lot, not only to me but to this region and world football. He's a very special man.

He puts his heart and soul into everything and he is certainly doing that now with his charity. He is going through a tough time but he keeps going and that's the Bobby I know.'
