Newcastle striker Cisse: I can't be compared with Shearer

Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse says he's not the 'new Alan Shearer'.

Cisse's goal against Southampton has been likened to Shearer in his pomp.

"I have seen Alan Shearer's goal against Everton on TV. It does not come into my mind.

"Alan Shearer is the big man. I'm not Alan - I try sometimes but Alan is the big man.

"I have never met him. But all of the time I see him on TV he talks well about me when I play good."
