Alan Shearer names Premier League stadium he loved visiting most as you got 'more respect' than anywhere else
| Last updated
Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has named one of the Premier League's most iconic stadiums as the ground he enjoyed playing at the most.
The former England international won the top flight title in 1995 with Rovers, before completing a £15m move to his hometown club a year later for what was then a world record fee.
Shearer hung up his boots in 2006 and aside from a brief spell in interim charge of Newcastle in 2009, has been a pundit.
Reflecting on which ground he enjoyed playing at the most in his career in the latest edition of The Rest Is Football podcast, Shearer named a truly iconic stadium.
The former forward named Liverpool's home of Anfield as the ground he enjoyed visiting the most, believing he received more respect from the Kop fanbase compared to other stadiums he played at as an opposition player.
Shearer said: "I always used to love going to Anfield because I loved the ground, I loved the atmosphere.
"Maybe I'm wrong but I always felt you got a little bit more respect as a player.
"If you were a half decent player, you got a little bit more respect in Anfield than you did in a lot of grounds.
"They're an incredible football club, but very rarely did you come away from Anfield with anything. But I always enjoyed it just because it's got a special atmosphere. "
Co-host and former Everton striker Gary Lineker - who chose Crystal Palace's home of Selhurst Park as his favourite owing to his rich vein of form in front of goal when he played very added: "I wouldn't argue with that, I loved going to Anfield, particularly when I was at Everton.
"We won 2-0 there and I scored in that game, a little dink over (Bruce) Grobbelaar as he came out and it was a joyous moment."
