Manchester City boss worried by Hart

Published Add your comment

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini last night admitted that he has concerns over Joe Hart's recent form, reports Goal.

The England no.1 was at fault for two of Bayern Munich's goals during City's 3-1 humbling at home in the Champions League, and his mistake for Franck Ribery's opener was a particularly poor moment.

The 'keeper has come under fire in recent months for his new-found aptitude at making errors that was never a part of his game before.

Pellegrini did admit post-game that Hart's difficulty in remaining consistently assured was a worry for him, but played down talk that the 26-year-old's performance was the only troublesome factor on a night where they were ruthlessly put to the sword.

"Of course I am worried about the mistakes," the City boss said.

"[But] the three goals, I think we can do better, not only the goalkeeper."

Hart's recent form has heightened talks that the Citizens may move for a new 'keeper, perhaps in January.

Real Madrid's Iker Casillas has been linked with a move away from Spain and could be an option, though it's more likely Pellegrini will opt to bring in someone as cover for Hart rather than an outright replacement.
