Alan Shearer has spoken of his admiration for the superb start that Papiss Cisse  has made in the English Premier League.

As well as raving about the Senegalese striker’s ten goals, the Geordie legend has given Cisse massive credit for the ease with which he’s fitted into the English game, a task that has found many a new foreign striker out – both at Newcastle United and elsewhere.

Plus of course the ultimate striker knows how important the number nine shirt is and it is imperative we have the right player wearing it. I think we’ve found him!

I think that it really hurts Shearer not to be part of Newcastle United at the moment and so it is to his credit that there is not a hint of bitterness as he enjoys Newcastle’s impressive season so far.
