Why Joe Heart Doesn't Want To Play For Man City Again

Joe Heart

Joe Hart is currently enjoying a loan spell at Torino in Serie A, where he has been one of the Italian club's star players in their unlikely bid for European qualification.

Hart is realistic about his chances of playing again for Manchester City again and knows that, as long as Pep Guardiola is manager, he must look for another challenge.

At 29, Hart is entitled to believe he has many more years left at the top and he has come to terms with the fact that after a decade in Manchester the time has come to look elsewhere.

"This is the second time I've gone out on a season-long loan," he told Soccer Saturday. "I've not been sent here to see how I do or see if I improve. I've been sent out because I wasn't wanted.

"I'm not here to prove what I can do, I'm here because I need to look elsewhere and I didn't have a chance to sort anything permanently. The way I look at it, I want to do as well as I can for Torino and if somebody comes in for me I don't think Manchester City are going to stand in my way."

It was a frank conversation with Guardiola back in the summer, on Hart's return from Euro 2016, that led to the goalkeeper's departure.
