Villa keeper Given admits management on agenda

Aston Villa goalkeeper Shay Given admits management is on the agenda.

Given is currently playing on-loan for Middlesbrough.

"I see no reason why keepers can't make managers," he told the Daily Mail. "There are generally less keepers because there is only one in a team but there is no reason why.

"If you had a philosophy and played in a good team with good players it manages itself then it is a question of getting the best out of people and using man-management skills, which for me is 90 per cent of job, and getting players to run through that brick wall for you. Within that having your own system and way of playing.

"But it is not rocket science and it doesn't need to be complicated, It hasn't changed that much I don't think."
