Villa keeper Given accepts being Guzan backup

Aston Villa goalkeeper Shay Given accepts playing second fiddle to Brad Guzan.

But the veteran admits it's been frustrating.

Given told the Daily Mail: "The club have Brad Guzan and he was player of the season last season so he has had a fantastic time since he has been in the team. That makes it difficult to argue with the decision to play him but it is frustrating for me. The manager has said I'm not going to move on so I just try to stay fit and wait for something to come along."
