first_imgSouthampton goalkeeper Angus Gunn: I wanted to be a strikerby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveSouthampton goalkeeper Angus Gunn admits Mum isn’t crazy about having another keeper in the family.Like most kids, he started out dreaming of being a striker but was put between the sticks as a nine-year-old. Yet, if his mum had had her way, she would have stopped the ­ Southampton goalie following in dad Bryan’s footsteps.Gunn Jnr told the Mirror: “I was on trial ­playing outfield at Norwich City for the Under-9s, the keeper got injured. Someone gave me the gloves and after that ­session, someone else told me to bring the gloves next time and focus on being a ­goalkeeper.“After the session when they told me to be a keeper, my dad got home, told my mum and I don’t think she was very pleased. She was like, ‘I’ve dealt with you for 20 years – I don’t need another goalkeeper!’“But it ­happened, she accepted it and I think she’s fine with it now.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img
