Ipswich Town striker Michael Chopra has called for the club to appoint former England frontman Alan Shearer as the Championship outfit's new manager.

The Tractor Boys are searching for a new coach after parting company with Paul Jewell yesterday following a difficult start to the season, which has placed the side at the bottom of the league table.

Chopra tweeted: "Who do the fans want as manager? i would love to see alan shearer as manager such a good person and worked, played under some great managers including sir bobby robson."

Following the departure of Jewell, Sports Mole compiled a list of the potential contenders for the role.
