Former Manchester City goalkeeper Shay Given has said that he is extremely delighted with Manchester City winning the title this season. The former Newcastle United goalkeeper is currently at Aston Villa after having left Manchester city a few seasons ago in order to get regular first-team football.
A lot of tributes have been coming in on the social networking site Twitter following the dramatic 3-2 final day of the season win over QPR, which sealed the title for Manchester city. For most of the match, it looked like City were going to drop two points that would have given Manchester United the opportunity to lift the 20th Premier league title.
However, two goals in the last 5 min from Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero meant that Manchester City were able to snatch a dramatic win in the match. Shay Given spent a few seasons at the Etihad stadium before leaving for Aston Villa. He left for Aston Villa after seeing goalkeeper Joe Hart claim a regular first-team spot. Despite this, he said a few weeks ago that he wants Manchester City to win the title because he still has a lot of friends at the club. His wish has come true after City became only the fifth team to win the league title.
“Congrats to everyone at Manchester City. Really happy for all connected to the club. The blue moon is rising. Enjoy your night!” said Shay Given on Twitter. “Wow!! Speechless!! What an end to the Premier League!! Kun Aguero just handed the Premier League to Manchester City! Congrats to Manchester City!” said former Manchester United defender and current Barcelona defender Gerard Pique after missing the match. Many think that this season has been the most exciting in the Premier league season so far in the 20 seasons that have happened.
