Gordon Banks is concerned that a lack of international competition is undermining Hart after a week in which doubts were raised about the under-pressure England goalkeeper.
“I feel sad for people that do that, and I find it a little bit disrespectful [of Foster],” said Banks to the Sunday Mirror.
“All players should want to play for their country, and be proud of getting selected. Certainly in was dead proud to be walking out on to that pitch.
“While this is happening, there’s nobody pushing Joe Hart. He needs somebody to keep him on his toes and playing good every game.”
