Given ready for Hart battle over Man City No1 spot

Manchester City goalkeeper Shay Given has warned Joe Hart the No1 spot is up for grabs next season.

The Blues stopper has indicated that he expects to be fit for the start of the new season on August 14, and is happy to fight it out with the young England man for a place in the first team.

"Joe has had a fantastic season at Birmingham and deserves great credit - and he still may play for England in the World Cup finals," 34-year-old Given told the Manchester Evening News.

"It will be great competition for me, and for Joe himself, and that is great for the club. If we have that kind of competition in every position at the club, we would be very strong."
