Robson: Shearer destined to take charge of Newcastle

Sir Bobby Robson is convinced Alan Shearer is destined for management.

Robson told Setanta Sports News: "Alan will have his own personal reasons for that (rejecting Blackburn).

"But I think there will be a time when he has done a few things that he has wanted to do after playing when he might be a bit more ready for the big jobs, the big tasks.

"We'll have to wait and see. He is his own man who makes his own decisions and we will see what happens."

Robson added: "I think he is destined for Newcastle one day. I don't think there is any more pressure at a big club because the risk is the same at a big club as it is at a small club.

"If you are going to succeed at a little club, you are going to succeed at a big club, so what's the difference."
