Shay Given may be absent from the Republic’s friendly against Bosnia after picking up a knee injury in training.
A spokesman for the FAI told our Official Site:
‘Shay picked up a minor knee injury in training. After undergoing a scan, it was concluded that Shay should sit out training for the next few days for precautionary measures.’
As for the QPR speculation. A newspaper that really should know better last night published a totally unsubstantiated claim that due to Paddy Kenny not yet being offered a new contract, it was basically a nailed on certainty that Given’s former boss Mark Hughes would be in for the player, especially with the ‘uncertainty’ surrounding Villa Park at the moment.
I won’t provide a link, I really wouldn’t waste your time looking for extra details.
It’s the standard manager player link again, totally ignoring the fact he has 4 years on his contract left, Guzan is moving on, and we all know Shay was the Player of the Season for us (with Ireland a close second in my humble).
Of all the players who might move on this summer, I’d bet Shay won’t be one of them!
