Man City No1 Hart: I don't care about Man Utd's De Gea, Lindegaard dilemma

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart isn't bothered about Manchester United's keeper problems.

Hart has no time for the goalkeepers' union when it comes down to the business of winning a derby.

He said: "What United do has ­nothing to do with me. When Edwin van der Sar retired he left big shoes to fill and ­although I might sound selfish and rude, I'm not interested in what's happening over there.

"I remember when Roberto Mancini had a decision to make when it was between me and Shay Given.

"Luckily he chose to go with me, but that's gone now and I don't think about it. As a ­goalkeeper you are either in or out. At one point I was out and Shay was in, so I went to Birmingham on loan.

"When I came back I was in the team and I love this club and love being here. Shay is a great keeper and a great person. I still speak to him because I look up to the guy massively. But luckily I got the chance to play for City and I am so focused that I don't care about how things are going for the United keepers."
