Chelsea legend reveals all about bruising encounter with Alan Shearer

“I got my nose broken four times as a player – twice by Shearer”

Frank Leboeuf

“Because strikers… Shearer in particular, the guy when there was a goal kick coming our way, he’d look back at where you were and send an elbow flying in your face, and you’re just like ‘s**t!’.”

Shearer’s habit of leading with his elbow didn’t go entirely unpunished by referees.

He racked up 59 yellow cards during his career and was sent off twice – although one red card was later rescinded on appeal.
