Former Liverpool star Didi Hamann has taken a swipe at ex-Newcastle United teammate Alan Shearer.
Hamann takes issue with Shearer over his criticism of Joe Allen.
âShearer wouldnât know about passing a ball because all he did was finish,â said Hamann to the Liverpool Echo.
âHe did a good job of putting it in the net but he never needed to pass a ball backwards or sideways.
âItâs rubbish to say Joe Allen only makes easy passes. You need players who keep the team ticking over and ensure that you keep possession,
âWhat he has done for the football club so far has been great. Iâm not sure any other player would have had the impact heâs had.
âThe fans are talking about Allen and rightly so because heâs been outstanding. Shearerâs remarks wonât make me change my mind.â
