Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer is shocked by events this week at his old club.

Shearer wrote in The Sun: “Where do we start? What I do know is that right now people are laughing at the football club I support. And that sickens me.

“I promised myself years ago never to be surprised by what happens in football – particularly when it comes to Newcastle. But this situation really is stretching it a bit.

“While other clubs are all plotting and planning for next season, Newcastle have a manager who has just been totally undermined.

“Alan Pardew has said he will carry on but I am sure it will be a difficult situation.”

He added: “As for that announcement, what are the players to think when he can’t even get their names right? It’s all a PR disaster.”
