Alan Shearer knows what it takes to impress Newcastle United fans.

The Premier League Champion scored 148 of his record 260 Premier League goals for the Magpies and is the club’s all-time record scorer.

So Salomon Rondon can be rightly proud of his display against AFC Bournemouth that Shearer has described as "the complete centre-forward’s performance".

Rondon scored both goals in the 2-1 home win against an in-form side sixth in the table. The second was a powerful header that reminded fans of Shearer.

"He dominated and bullied the AFC Bournemouth defenders and was rewarded with two impressive goals,” says Shearer, who named Rondon in his Team of the Week. “His second was particularly magnificent!🙋🏼‍♂️🙋🏼‍♂️”
