Alan Shearer answers: Duncan Ferguson or Temuri Ketsbaia on his side in a fight?

5 years ago

Alan Shearer has been answering questions from fans.

One of his commercial tie-ups is with bookmaker Coral and they asked supporters to pose their questions to the Newcastle United legend.

The former Number 9 was asked how much he would be worth in today’s transfer market, whether he had ever considered joining Manchester United and about derbies he’d watched and played in.

However, maybe the most interesting one was if he was going into a fight, would he rather have Duncan Ferguson or Temuri Ketsbaia on his side…

‘How much would you be worth in today’s transfer market?’

Well (with a smile), probably I’d be worth the world record fee, there’ no doubt about that.

“If Pogba is worth £90m I’d be worth £95m…simple! Ha ha ha ha.”

‘Did you ever consider going to Man United?’

“Yes I did and I actually chose a house in the Manchester area – but I always wanted to play for Newcastle United.

“It was my dream and I wouldn’t change my mind if I had to make the decision today.”

‘Who would you rather have in your team if going into a fight, Duncan Ferguson or Temuri Ketsbaia?’

“There is only one Duncan Ferguson and you would not want to face him in a battle!

“He was my ex-teammate, the two of us up front together – he was a warrior.”

‘Any derby you wished you’d played in?’

“I have been to a few derbies around the world.

“I’ve played Sunderland/Newcastle of course and played England v Scotland. I’ve been to watch the old firm and the atmosphere I have to say is just electric.”
