„90's Legends of Football #1: Alan Shearer“

from the gallery of Thibault Rouquet
Description:

As a football fan, I wanted to work on some prints about the stars I was a fan as a child. Alan Shearer is the first one that came to my mind. At first, I'm a big fan of the emblematic England & Newcastle captain: I remember his goals during the 96' euro (the first international competition I trully remember). At this time, Alan Shearer was one of the best strikers in the world. He was Premier league's best scorer with 31 goals (!!) and top striker at the euro but he choose to stay at Newcastle United 10 years, scoring 206 goals for the club.Here is the reason why he is the first one that came to my mind: Alan Shearer was not only an amazing striker, he is also the one that said 'no' to the biggest european clubs to stay in the team he was supporting since his childhood. I respect his career more than all the other players of the 90's: He was not in the best club, He did not win the Champion's league. All he won is a Premier League title. He chose to play with his heart for the team he loved & I respect that.
