Man City keeper Given urges Newcastle to give job to Shearer

Manchester City goalkeeper Shay Given says Newcastle United must give Alan Shearer the manager's job fulltime.

He told Sky Sports News: "I think he is the right guy to move the club forward. He's got great respect in the game.

"He is a great ambassador for football and I think he would be the ideal man to move the club in the right direction.

"He is a leader off the pitch and now he is going to be a manager he can be a leader more so than when he was captain, he has got the qualities to be a top manager."
