The Republic of Ireland star dislocated his left shoulder and also suffered tendon and ligament damage when saving Abou Diaby?s shot during the goalless draw at Arsenal in late April. The setback saw City bring in Sunderland?s Marton Fulop as cover on an emergency loan, but 34-year-old Given expects to be ready to reclaim his place in August after a summer of conditioning work. ?The specialist was pleased with my progress. He said if anything I?m ahead of schedule so that?s good news,? he said. ?I?ve been training all week in Manchester with the physios. It?ll be a different summer for me but the most important thing is to get back for the new season and that?s my target. ?That?s the plan and I should be okay.? Given faces competition for his City place from Joe Hart. Who should be the City number one? Have your say.| Submit Comments| Comments (13)| Printable VersionAdd A CommentEnter your comments:
