Given urged to quit Man City

Matt Holland wants to see former Republic of Ireland teammate Shay Given to leave Manchester City.

Former Charlton Athletic star Holland believes Given deserves to be a Premier League No1.

He told talkSPORT: "It's madness that he doesn't play week in week out in the Premier League because he is a top-class goalkeeper.

"He's 35-years-old, and if you look this week at Spurs buying Brad Friedel who is 40-years-old on a two-year deal.

"It just goes to show that Shay Given has got plenty of longevity left in his career. I hope that in the summer that maybe he'll go and play somewhere and get a move where he can play as number one because certainly his talent deserves that."
