Alan Shearer set for NUFC return & could be followed by former Liverpool chief – The Telegraph

The Telegraph are reporting that Alan Shearer is “likely” to take up an ambassadorial role at Newcastle following our £300million Saudi takeover.

Our all-time leading goalscorer has already met Amanda Staveley in the aftermath of the deal, which sent shockwaves through the footballing world on Thursday evening.

He was infamously snubbed by former owner Mike Ashley after our relegation in 2009, with Shearer still waiting for a call that never came despite accepting the task of getting us back into the Premier League.

Now, the Telegraph claim that Shearer will ‘promote and advise’ the new owners should he accept the position, as Staveley is keen on reconnecting fans with the club and seeing former club heroes as an integral part of that.

The same outlet report that we have lined up Frank McParland as a potential target to become our new sporting director.

The 63-year-old was previously chief scout and Academy director Liverpool, also enjoying spells at Brentford, Rangers and Burnley.

He is somebody the consortium feel could add experienced footballing insight into the boardroom – something that had been sorely lacking during the Mike Ashley era.

    Quite surprised there’s been no real mention of SpecialK in the coverage of the media. I hope he has a future role at the club

  3. Please don’t get too carried away with this news, as the Saudis may be a dark horse that we have unleashed on the world of football and once established will expand and dominate the game, and though our former owner failed (in a sense)could make profits beyond ones dreams. what appears a fabulous deal may not be quite the story. after all the Saudi fortune of over 300b is dedicated to-wards the rebuilding of the country nt the help of an obscure n/e side out of the reaches of
    London
