Adebayor: Burnley can help Hart return to best

Istanbul Basaksehir striker Emmanuel Adebayor says Burnley can help Joe Hart return to his very best.

The former Manchester City teammates were reunited earlier this month in the Europa League.

Adebayor said: “He still has got what it takes. It only takes him having a great game against a City, Arsenal, Chelsea or a Manchester United for people to start talking about him again.

“Football is a funny old game. You are a villain today and a hero tomorrow. He can be that hero tomorrow.

“He is such a nice fella that I can only wish him the best and from a personal view get back where he belongs. Why not play for England again?

“The only thing that can happen to him now is going up. What I've seen of him is the Joe Hart I remember from our Manchester City days together. It was a pleasure to play against him.

“Joe is a world-class goalkeeper, there is no doubt about that.

“I was very surprised how it went for him but when you get a new manager in at such a huge club as City it is always difficult.

“It takes courage deciding to come to Burnley."
