Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez has admitted that he is disappointed with the lack of new signings at the club this month. The Magpies are currently above the relegation zone by just a couple of points but their position remains far from guaranteed with difficult games against Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur in the horizon.
Fans of Shay Given, the former Ireland international team and Newcastle United goalkeeper’s salary at his new post at Derby County has been revealed – and he’s doing alright!?
Presumably for tax reasons, Given now owns a UK media company that his wages are paid to, and that company’s accumulated profit has doubled to £232,457 in fifteen months towards the end of March as the newly filed accounts show. During this time, profits increased by £127,270 while the cash in the bank grew by £21,020 and was £129,041 by the end of March.
Shay Given has been offered a goalkeeper coaching role within Mick McCarthy’s Republic of Ireland backroom team.
Former Manchester City star Shay Given believes Ederson is the best goalkeeper in the world when it comes to the ball-playing qualities. The Brazil international only joined the Citizens from Benfica last year but he has since built a huge reputation for himself after having won the Premier League with a record points tally during his debut campaign.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri feels Ross Barkley deserves a call-up to the England national side after impressing for the Blues during the opening stages of the campaign. The attacker joined the Blues from Everton during the 2018 winter transfer window but was restricted to just three appearances as he struggled to prove his fitness after a niggling hamstring problem.
According to the reports, Shay Given name has been confirmed as the new head goalkeeping coach at Championship side Derby County. Given is now 42-years-old and he has not taken retirement from the game officially, but the news confirms that he will be part of the backroom team of Frank Lampard, as the Rams seems to start on a promotion push in this campaign.
At the end of May, Lampard took the reins at Derby following Gary Rowett. “Shay is a good friend of mine and I know him well. As a goalkeeper, his standing in the game and he is right up there at the very top. His engagement with the team will bring many things and we are extremely excited about for the same,” Said, the former midfielder of Chelsea.
The new head goalkeeping coach of Derby County, Shay Given is happy to have put his boots back once again. The player has started his job and on the day he reflected in his first day as given. “Well, I did not have sleep overly well last night, the reason was, the training session was going through in my head. I thoroughly enjoyed the training session as well as meeting the goalkeepers. Additionally, it was nice to get back in the game again and come on the grass all set to play.
Shay Given is now 42-year-old and he is retired from playing. He got retried just a year ago. He was associated with many distinguished teams during his career that has given him good experience of this game. He further added “A player always misses the ground and it is difficult. You used to get up on time every day, wearing gloves and the boots on, getting ready for the match and so on,” he added.
Former Newcastle goalkeeper Shay Given believes that Jose Mourinho is wrong when criticizing his players in public. He said that the last thing that you want to hear as a player is your manager criticizing you especially when you have won a game.
Since the young age of 16, Shay Given had attracted the attention of Manchester United but despite having the chance of joining one of the most highly-rated clubs of the entire English Premier League, the Irish shot-stopper opted to instead make a move to Celtic.
When it comes to having superstar goal-keepers, Manchester United have been extremely lucky after being able to keep hold of Edwin van der Sar for 6 years as he joined on 2005 until 2011 and the English outfit would later sign David de Gea.
Shay Given opines that West Ham first choice keeper Joe Hart is repaying the faith in him by Gareth Southgate. Ahead of England’s planned friendly games against Germany and Brazil, the Three Lions manager named Hart, Stoke City keeper Jack Butland and Everton’s shot stopper Jordan Pickford as goalkeepers. Butland later withdrew so Hart and Pickford are expected in between the sticks.
Given says the situation proves that Hart remains the first choice keeper for England. The Manchester City loanee has struggled at the London Stadium this term with his employers West Ham. However, the 30-year old player with 74 caps remains the key man for England in goal.
