Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan admits he didn't take his profession seriously until he was 17.

Guzan wrote in the Daily Mail: "I didn't actually start playing as a goalkeeper specifically until I was 17 or 18. I played outfield. I wasn't the best but was always the biggest. I scored a few set piece goals. Occasionally now I give a cheeky look over to the bench if we're losing late on to see if they're waving me forward but not yet.

"I'm waiting for my glory moment in front of the Holte End."
