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.
During tenure as the coach of Derby County, Given will work with Scott Carson, Kelle Roos and Jonathan Mitchell. In his address, he pointed out the consistency shown by Carson in the last two seasons and said that he is determined to help keepers in developing their future. He said “I have played opposite Scotty, and it is good to see him on the ground and playing so well”.
“While being the coach of the team, I will keep helping him to improve, along with Kelle and Mitch. Though I have seen their game still I have still sat down with them individually in-order to understand what their goal is and what they want from this season, and what improvement they need”.
