Joe Hart is pretty pleased to leave Manchester City as he says that he is set free following his departure from the club. Hart joined Burnley last week.
Following the arrival of Pep Guardiola and a disappointing Euro 2016, Hart’s playing time at Manchester City was limited. Guardiola even said that he won’t be a starting player for the club. He then spent the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons on loan at Torino and West Ham respectively.
Hart said, “It’s been quite difficult to believe in me recently. I’m a big head to chop off if you want to shake things up. I’ve got vast experience and won things but I was a loanee, which is what you expect from someone around aged around 18 to 21. It was difficult for people to warm to what I was doing. Except from inside the dressing room, nobody knew what I was about. Wherever I’ve been then that’s where my heart and soul is. I’ve got a few years here and want to go deep with it. I needed to cut ties with City and I feel like I’ve been set free. Officially, I’ve been at one club for 12 years. I’m excited to be at a new one. My whole life is this club.”
