New Newcastle United manager Alan Shearer has marked his returned to St. James’ Park with his debut press conference in front of the baying press core.
The main point Shearer was keen to stress is that the job is just until the end of the season, with the talking-head refusing point-blank to discuss the future thereafter.
Clips from Shearer’s first press conference followed by a discussion of events in the BBC News studios can be seen here.
In a separate interview, Big Al made himself exclusively available to local journalists at the Newcastle training ground, with the former number 9 admitting candidly on camera “we’re in a tough sh*t situation.”
Shearer’s faux pas can be seen 1.20 minutes into this video.
