And this time, he was naming the best XI among former teammates during his playing career.


And while Shearer controversially kicked David Ginola out of his side, others accused the Premier League’s record goalscorer of having an agenda against him before referencing the bust-up with Owen.

Richards said: “He’s here taking care of his teammates. You can’t have Ginola. Oh my word.”

Lineker replied: “He is thinking about who is most likely to pass it to him.

“It’s your team, I don’t disagree at all. I think Graeme le Sox is a lovely footballer, a really good player… but Ginola.”

Richards continued: “Something has happened there, behind the scenes.

“Something happened between him and Alan. You know, not putting him in.

“He has an agenda with the team, I can see it already.”

Shearer denied having an agenda, before Lineker quipped: “Let’s see if Michael Owen comes out.”

Richards continued: “Yeah, I didn’t want to mention it,” before they both laughed – although Shearer’s reaction was out of shot.

Shearer and Owen were good friends and formed a formidable strike partnership for England.

But things turned sour in Newcastle.

The local legend was brought in as manager to try and save the club from relegation – but he could not do so and placed much of the blame on Owen.

However, Owen felt he had been made the scapegoat and that Shearer’s managerial failures left him disappointed.

The pair were embroiled in a raging Twitter feud in 2019 as their tension became public.

Richards also cracked his trademark laugh when Shearer confirmed his midfield pairing of Rob Lee and Tim Sherwood to compete against his own pair of Patrick Vieira and Yaya Toure.
