Alan Shearer has reportedly informed John Williams that he wants to become the new Blackburn Rovers manager.
Shearer was one of the first names linked with the job after Mark Hughes left for Manchester City, but Rovers were unsure that he would want to give up his well paid job which is to agree with Alan Hansen at the BBC.
However, The Times newspaper is reporting that Shearer has told Rovers chairman John Williams that he does want to be considered for the role.
His lack of experience would require an experienced back room coaching team but he is without a doubt the fan's choice for the job.
Dont be fooled by his waterted down role on TV... the man can inspire the best of them.
Meanwhile, former Blackburn coach Tony Parkes thinks that Shearer deserves his chance.
Parkes told The Daily Express: 'Alan will be a good manager - he just needs the chance to prove it. He is single-minded and has the utmost respect from players and managers throughout the game.
'When Kenny Dalglish was manager, he did hardly any coaching; most of that was down to Ray Harford. Alan could do the same if he brought in an experienced number two who could help him out with the tactical side.'
Great suggestion Tony.
