“Yeah he got involved, he still could have played to be fair, he could’ve kept us up if he played to be honest,” Nolan stated.
Even though Shearer he retired 3 years in advance, Nolan firmly insisted: “He was still that excellent, he remained in fantastic shape.
“I think I actually said to him, ‘You should play’. He used to bang goals in every time he got an opportunity, goal, goal.”
Andy Goldstein then joked if he stated that to keep selecting him in the side, however he responded: “No, because he didn’t pick me when I first walked in, I had to work my way in!”
Further contributing to his compliments of Shearer, Nolan stated: “Everything about him, his method, his power, the method he struck the ball…
“I’m sure you could [teach what he had] but it would take a lot of practice. I’m sure that’s come from him doing it a lot when he was younger and continuing it and just getting better at it. But I’m sure a lot of it comes down to talent as well.”
Shearer’s interim spell at Newcastle is the only task he has actually taken in football management given that his retirement.
His period was no place near as effective as his capability to score objectives though as he won simply among his 8 video games at the helm.
