Alex McLeish has backing of the Aston Villa dressing room says Shay Given
Tuesday 01 May 2012
Shay Given insists under-fire Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish still retains the support of the dressing room.
And the Republic of Ireland keeper insists it is up to everyone to take responsibility for the club's current plight.
Given told BBC Radio Five Live: "Every manager in the Premier League's job is on the line but obviously we're under a bit of pressure and Alex is under a bit of pressure.
"But we have got to take responsibility ourselves, players and staff alike.
"Does McLeish still have dressing room support? Yes of course he does, he's a fantastic manager and we're all right behind him but we'd obviously like results to be better this season."
