Joe Hart has been omitted from England’s squad for the summer’s World Cup after Gareth Southgate opted against selecting the national side’s most experienced current player for the tournament in Russia.
The Manchester City goalkeeper, who has spent the season on loan at West Ham, was told on Monday in a phone-call from Southgate that he would not be travelling to Russia.
Hart’s loan deal with the Hammers comes to an end this month with his 11-year Manchester City career also officially ending the same day when his contract expires with the Premier League winners at the end of May.
Hart will become a free agent but with his current wages are claimed to include £120,000 per week from West Ham and a further £55,000 per week from Manchester City. The Hammers won’t entertain wages everything close to take the amount and will look elsewhere for a replacement once the West Ham manager situation is resolved.
There are always footballer who have rapid declines in their ability unfortunately Joe Hart is in that bracket. When he came on loan I was genuinely hoping he would get back to his best, he can’t say he wasn’t given an opportunity by West Ham just never happened. Guardiola must be given credit for seen it way before others.
he bloke clearly can’t kick a football, so pep spotted something pretty obvious. it’s coincided however with this massive decline in form & ability (to get down low) and that means he simply isn’t what he used to be for what is a ridiculous amount of money.
