Capello admits ignoring Man City keeper Hart to keep him grounded

England coach Fabio Capello has revealed he ignored previous selection calls for Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart to stop him becoming big headed.

Capello admits he had concerns about the player's temperament when first working with him.

Capello said: "I remember when I selected Hart against Trinidad two years ago he was not the same player.

"He probably started to play in the Manchester City first team too early and started to think 'I am the best'."
