Newcastle legend Shearer on takeover collapse: Lot of anger

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has weighed into the club's takeover collapse.

Shearer has dubbed the collapsed £300m takeover of Newcastle “disappointing", saying fans can “only hope and pray" for new owners.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, Shearer said: “There's a lot of anger, understandably so, and a massive amount of disappointment.

“They want their club to compete, they want their club to move forward, that's why yesterday was such a disappointing day.

“We can only hope and pray that new owners come in at some stage and take the club back to where it belongs because that's what the fans of Newcastle deserve."
