Man City keeper Hart won't let plaudits go to his head

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart won't allow plaudits go to his head.

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart won't allow plaudits go to his head.

Both Wayne Rooney and Roberto Mancini described him as the best keeper on the planet after his virtuoso display. But Hart has vowed to keep his feet on the ground, despite such glowing praise.

“It’s nice people say nice things but things are easily said,” the 25-year-old said.

“In goal, you can be the worst in the world two days later if you are on television and something mad happens in the game.

“You’ve got to try to take the rough with the smooth.

“It was great and a real special honour for some special people to say some nice things, but we move on.”
