Newcastle legend Shearer linked with Wigan job

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer is being linked with a sensational first manager's job at Wigan Athletic.

The Manchester Evening News says there has been speculation of an audacious approach for Alan Shearer, who has had business links in the past with the Wigan chairman.

But North East sources say this is a total non-starter. Shearer still doesn't have the necessary coaching credentials and is thought to be waiting for the right time to stake a claim for the Newcastle job.
