Alan Shearer says no to Cardiff
Newcastle and England legend Alan Shearer has revealed that he was in the running to take the vacant manager's job at Cardiff City, but has since announced that he rejected the offer.
Shearer said: I can confirm that I was one of the candidates that the club spoke to about the vacant manager's position at Cardiff City. During these talks I was most impressed with the vision, ambition and determination of the owner Dato Chan Tien Ghee and the board.
"Unfortunately those talks were unsuccessful on this occasion. Cardiff City is a great club and I wish them every success next season."
