Alan Shearer Net Worth $52.5 Million
Alan Shearer comes with an estimated net worth of $52.5 million. Retired English footballer, Alan Shearer, has a net worth of million as of April 2012, based on the Sunday Times Rich List. Shearer combines work as a television football pundit for the BBC and Al-Jazeera together with his role as an ambassador for Umbro, continuing an organization that dates from when he signed a 15-year endorsement handle the sports firm aged 27. The offer is worth 1.33m a year. Shearer moved from appreciating the Toon Army’s adulation to bantering on the Match of the Day couch, so that five years after his retirement as a player for Newcastle United, his wealth is growing. Shearer played for Southampton, Blackburn Rovers, Newcastle United and for the England national team. A short taste of management arrived during the last eight games of the season that culminated in Newcastle’s relegation in May 2009. A 1.8m bonus escaped his clutches when he failed to keep the side in the Premier League but the episode did little to tarnish the image of a striker who scored 206 goals in 404 appearances for Newcastle before his retirement as a player in 2006. For several years, Shearer commanded a 2m-plus salary. His company Shearer Promotions showed considerably larger strengths of 1.7m in 2009. Since his retirement from playing he’s devoted considerable time to charity. He is an ambassador with all the NSPCC and also a patron of the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, which has increased more than 2.5m in the prior three years. He also supports the Alan Shearer Centre in Newcastle, which helps children in need as well as their own families.
