Alan Shearer's only spell in the managerial arena was a unsuccessful eight-game spell in charge of his beloved Newcastle, with whom he was unable to save from relegation out of the Premier League, back in 2009.
Shearer has since returned to his position as a pundit on Match of the Day, a role he is likely to continue in for some time.
It doesn't matter that I didn't win a trophy because I did it my way and I lived the dream.
When I was a young boy I wanted to play for Newcastle United, I wanted to wear the number nine shirt and I wanted to score goals at St James' Park. I've lived my dream and I realise how lucky I've been to have done that.
The managers are getting paid very well by their respective clubs to do a job for their clubs not the country they are working in.
