Shearer: I couldn't manage current Newcastle

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer says he could never consider managing the club under the current circumstances. Shearer said: "I'd like to be a manager at some point in my career but I want to manage - and control who comes in and out of the club. If you've got three, four or five players waiting for you and you don't know who they are, then you have got the right to ask yourself, 'Can I manage this football club?'"
