Alan Shearer’s response to a Sunderland fan regarding Southampton game

The Newcastle United legend does not want Sunderland to win in the Premier League today.

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has suggested on social networking site Twitter that he wants Southampton to win against Sunderland.

The Saints will take on Sunderland at St. Mary’s Stadium in the Premier League this afternoon.

Former Southampton striker Shearer does not want the Black Cats to pick up all three points this afternoon, making a rather amusing reply to a Sunderland fan on Twitter when asked for his well wishes.

Shearer is a former Newcastle player, and he will not want Sunderland to win as that will only make things worse for the Magpies.

Steve McClaren’s side are in danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season, just like Sunderland.

The Magpies will take on Bournemouth at St. James’ Park in the Premier League this afternoon.

Newcastle are second from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment, while Sunderland are just above the relegation zone in 17th.
