Manchester City's number one shot-stopper, Shey Given has fired a shot across Joe Hart's bow - "My aim to be fit and playing at the beginning of the Premier League season."
Manchester City players return to Carrington tomorrow (Monday 5 July) for pre-season training, and that includes Shey Given, who has recovered ahead of schedule following a shoulder injury which occurred towards the latter part of last season.
The 34-year-old Republic of Ireland international told the Daily Star...
"My aim is to be back fit and playing by the start of the season. Things are progressing well. I may have to miss one or two pre-season friendlies but I am not far away at all."
The former Newcastle United stalwart continued...
"Joe is a top young goalkeeper, a real talent and I saw what he could do before he left for Birmingham. But he's back now and it will be good to work with him again."
"He is one for the future and no doubt now that he is back at Manchester City he has big ambitions."
In response to Shey's comments the 23-year-old England international added...
"City are a club I have been at for a long time now and a club I think a lot of. I still have to wait and see how it works out there. But the decision on my future is not up to me. I'm just a player. It's not down to me at the end of the day. I'm contracted to City and that's where I'm going back to. That's the team I'm part of. It's as simple as that."
