Joe Hart is unwilling to sit on the substitutes’ bench this season and would prefer to go out on loan again. Apparently!
Shay Given has recovered from his shoulder injury and if the truth be known the Republic of Ireland keeper is thought to be Mancini’s first choice shot-stopper.
Nevertheless, Hart (23) who spent the whole of last season on loan at Birmingham made his feelings clear…
“Sitting on the bench doesn’t really interest me if I’m honest. I’ve played a lot of first-team football now and that’s all I want to do.”
Asked whether he would consider another loan move, Hart said…
“It wouldn’t be up to me, Manchester City are in charge of me at the moment but if I wasn’t playing I suppose I would have to reconsider.”
In response to Harts comments City boss Mancini said…
“Joe Hart will be the first-choice goalkeeper for England for the next 10 years but I do not know which goalkeeper will be my first choice next season.”
If you were the City boss what would you do?
Allow Hart to go out on-loan?
Keep Hart happy and make Given sit on the bench?
