Given saga: The Kennedy statement

Given saga: The Kennedy statement

So, despite baseless claims by Joe Kinnear to the contrary, Shay Given is unhappy at the current malaise on Tyneside. After display after display, season upon season, where he has saved our hides from utter humiliation, he has given the first public inkling that he would consider leaving NUFC. When the story broke three months ago in the Daily Mail we laughed it off. Looks like it was actually of some substance.

Shay`s spokesman Michael Kennedy said:

'Shay is very despondent following the very poor performance of the team against Liverpool last weekend. It was the lowest point of his football career and a performance that he would not wish to be repeated.

When he signed a new five-year contract in 2006 it was on the basis that the club would challenge for major honours, but on the present evidence all that he can see ahead, with the turmoil on and off the pitch, is a battle for survival. Having served the club loyally for over eleven years, Shay feels compelled to consider his position in the light of the interest being expressed in him by Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham.'
