Although he signed a five-year contract extension in 2006, he said he was disillusioned with life at the club and disappointed that the promised push for honours had failed to emerge.Newcastle lie 15th in the Premier League, one point above the relegation zone.Their highest finish since Given signed from Blackburn in 1997 was third place in 2002-2003, with the past two seasons spent in the bottom half of the league."The Liverpool match was a low point in my career," he said."It was one of those points where if I had left the pitch and never seen a football again I would have been happy, I was that low."I didn't know if I was going to leave but a lot of people said I was happy and settled, which I was in a way, but I wasn't comfortable."I wasn't comfortable with the way the club was going. I wanted to be challenging for honours.
