Shay Given Told To LEAVE Newcastle!

 Given has spent the past 11 years at St James's Park and is chasing the all-time Newcastle Utd appearance record, but Trapattoni says the situation on Tyneside in recent months hardly inspires confidence.

Trapattoni: "I would recommend Italian clubs to buy Shay Given from Newcastle. He resembles Gianluigi Buffon and I am not exaggerating when I say this.

"He is a born goalkeeper and there is a vacancy for players like this in Serie A."
