Joe Hart acts in new cringe-worthy Italian TV advert

Joe Hart is no stranger to a spot on television. A few years ago he was the face of shampoo brand Head & Shoulders, where we learned that he sadly suffers from a flaky scalp. 

But now, with his itchy head under control, it would seem that he's been quite eager to get back in front of the cameras again for another minor role while on loan in Italy.

The England international has been enjoying a season sampling another league and culture, and in an advert for Torino's in-house television station, he's given fans a glimpse into how good his Italian is, though the same can't be said for his acting.

Hart was forced out of Manchester City over the summer following the arrival of Pep Guardiola, who brought Claudio Bravo with him from Barcelona, but the advert first emerged just as his parent club were being knocked out of the Champions League by Ligue 1 side Monaco.

The move has backfired on Guardiola slightly, who has seen the Chilean international commit a series of errors that has gone someway to ensuring that City have fallen out of the Premier League title race.

At Torino, Hart doesn't have anywhere near the same sort of pressure as he did at City, and as such has been allowed to enjoy his time and his football this season, even though he has made a few errors of his own.

And he's feeling so relaxed that he's apparently slotted in nicely to life in Italy, and the advert below shows that he is getting to grips with the language.

Sat alongside the in-demand striker Andrea Belotti, the pair try to one-up each other with a highlight reel that shows Belotti scoring and Hart making an impressive save.

He's certainly not going to win an Oscar for his performance, but his language skills certainly aren't terrible, to be fair to him, and he should be commended for the effort he's put in since arriving in Serie A.

So far this season, Torino have been sat in mid-table in 10th, despite the heroics of Hart in goal and the striking ability of Belotti up front.

They're currently 15 points of a spot in Europe next season, but Hart hasn't damaged his reputation at all.

Since joining Torino he's managed to chalk up 27 appearances, missing just one league game all season.

Still, though he's made the spot his own, we still don't think he should give up his day job just yet.
