Aston Villa goalkeeper Shay Given believes Paul Lambert would be “a great appointment” should the Norwich City boss complete his move west.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

On a day of rabid speculation over the hugely successful Canaries boss, Given’s preparations in Italy with the Republic of Ireland’s Euro 2012 squad were briefly interrupted by questions over the situation at Villa Park.

And the goalkeeper was clear on his feelings should Lambert be waiting when Given returns to pre-season training.

“If that’s the case – I have no idea because I’m stuck in Italy somewhere and don’t know what’s going on at Aston Villa – but if Paul was to come in, it would be a great appointment because he’s a fantastic manager,” Given told Sky Sports.

“At every club he’s been at he has been going up all the time so hopefully, if they can get that done, it would be great news for the club.

“The sooner the manager is in place for next season the better because there will be targets and players he wants to get in himself. The sooner that’s done the better.”

  • Totally inappropriate article to put on here now. Insensitive, and insulting to Norwich fans.

  • This article is in pretty poor taste. It's news, but it's not what we want to hear right now. A little common sense would have be nice with regards to post this ed.
