Alan Shearer, who won the Premiership with Blackburn in 1994-95 has said that he would speak to the club if they wanted him to take up a managerial position.
Speaking on Football Focus, Shearer was quick to dismiss the idea that an exchange between himself and the club had already taken place.
“You’ll ask me if I’ve spoken to them, I haven’t. Have I tried to speak to them? No. Have they tried to speak to me? No.
"It’s a strange one at Blackburn, you’ve got to ask what the owners want. I presume they had a plan when Steve Kean was appointed. Do they want to be promoted, to make money or be popular?"
"When he was appointed they weren’t doing very well, they got relegated and he was constantly being undermined and I think when he resigned or was forced to resigned they were second in the league so it’s a tough situation."
"Whoever they appoint they’d have to get it right because it’s a lovely football club. With my history with Blackburn I would speak to them absolutely but I think things would have to change whoever went there."
