Premier League Manager Turned Down Chance To Sign Joe Hart

Premier League Manager Turned Down Chance To Sign Joe Hart

Joe Hart may well have remained in the Premier League this summer if things had been different.

Pep Guardiola was clearly not keen on Hart and how he would fare in his way of playing and he was subsequently moved on in the summer.

England's No.1 now plies his trade on loan at Torino in Italy but things could have been different if David Moyes had pushed further to sign Hart for Sunderland.

The Black Cats currently lie at the very foot of the Premier League table and the under pressure Moyes has revealed that he turned down the chance to sign Hart in the summer.

The former Manchester United and Everton boss had regular No.1 Vito Mannone out with injury and opted to persist with young goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, who received an England call-up last month.

"When I arrived, Vito Mannone was probably the No1 on experience but his injury meant we needed to turn to Jordan (Pickford) and he has stood up to all we've asked of him.

"I could have brought in Joe Hart, we thought he would have been ideal for us, but I had to think of Jordan's progression too and he hasn't let us down."

Did Moyes make the right call? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
