It’s been a long couple of seasons,” Given said.“I am loving every minute of it. Obviously you train every day to play at the weekend so I’m really happy to be in the side.“Brad is still pushing me really hard for that spot. It’s important that you perform every week to stay in.“But it’s been tough not playing regularly. People don’t see you training hard every day, in the gym and on the mat doing yoga. But I never gave up hope.” 1 Aston Villa goalkeeper Shay Given last_img
