Hodgson has no problem Neville publicly criticising Man City keeper Hart

England coach Roy Hodgson has no problem with Manchester United legend Gary Neville being critical of Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.

England coach Roy Hodgson has no problem with Manchester United legend Gary Neville being critical of Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.

Neville not only a pundit, but also part of Hodgson's coaching staff.

The England manager said: "There is no problem with that (criticism from Neville). He only ever calls things as he sees them.

"I heard what he said and I don't think it was that critical. It was more a matter of fact statement, and Joe is not afraid of criticism.

"Watching him walk off the pitch on Wednesday night, I am pretty sure he was disappointed and saddened by a performance he might see himself could have been so much better.

"But as a goalkeeper if you can't overcome those periods, you can't be a top goalkeeper, and Joe has done that in his career before."
