Mancini praise for Hart

Published Add your comment

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini thanked goalkeeper Joe Hart for saving his side from defeat in their Champions League Group D clash with Borussia Dortmund at the Etihad Stadium.

The England number one produced several outstanding saves before Mario Balotelli struck a late penalty to snatch a 1-1 draw. Dortmund keeper Roman Weidenfeller was also kept busy in an end-to-end encounter, but the visitors had looked on course for victory after Marco Reus pounced on a Jack Rodwell mistake after 62 minutes.

Mancini said: "Joe Hart saved us from an incredible defeat because he saved everything, and we should say thank you to him."
