Transfer Latest: Joe Hart Joins Burnley From Manchester City
Ever since the appointment of Pep Guardiola in Manchester City, things have not gone too well for goalkeeper Joe Hart. And the England international has finally managed to find a escape route after joining Burnley on a two-year deal just after coming back to City from loan playing for West Ham.
The deal ended Joe Hart’s 11-year career with Manchester City.
Hart joined Manchester City in 2006 and played over 300 games for the club. He is also regarded as the club legend, but things started to fall out after Pep took over the club. He brought Ederson and Claudio Bravo to the club and that was enough to say goodbye to Hart.
The 31-year-old was sent on loan to Torino and West Ham over the last two seasons. But now the player wants a permanent move to settle down his career. And the player also wanted to bid farewell to the club he joined at the age of 19.
Hart told Man City’s club website:
“It’s been a fantastic experience, I’ve grown a lot. I came here at 19 and I’m going to leave at 31. So it’s been a long time and lot of things have happened. Family, friends and a lot of football. I certainly feel a lot of love and appreciation. I’ve always enjoyed the Man City fans, I came here as a Shrewsbury Town player – a kid from Shrewsbury.”
“It was the pinnacle for me to be at this Club before they were challenging for the title, and I was welcomed from day one. I think they saw in me someone who was just going to try his best. I wouldn’t have been able to do the things I’ve done if I wasn’t embraced or happy. So I’m happy to have given the fans some great memories and hopefully I’ll be thought of well.”
Hart’s loan move to West Ham didn’t help either. The goal-keeper was dropped by then Hammers boss David Moyes and missed out on a place in England’s World Cup squad in Russia.
