Shearer rules himself out of Cardiff managerial job
15th June 2011 - Sigvard Magnus
Alan Shearer has confirmed that he will not be the new football manager of Cardiff City.
The Newcastle legend held talks with the club over a potential appointment, though these proved to be unsuccessful.
In a statement, Shearer revealed: "I can confirm that I was one of the candidates that the club spoke to about the vacant position.
"Unfortunately, those talks were unsuccessful on this occasion."
Shearer's only foray into management occurred at the end of the 2008-2009 season, when he managed Newcastle and could only win one of his eight games at the helm, which culminated in the Magpies' relegation from the Premier League.
His announcement will only fuel speculation on other people rumoured with the vacant Cardiff post.
At the moment, ex-West Bromwich Albion manager Roberto di Matteo, former Newcastle coach Chris Hughton and Watford's Malky Mackay have been linked to the position.
Speculation over Mackay led to Watford issuing a statement last week that their manager had not been approached regarding the Cardiff job.
